Open for Wine Tasting
We will be open for wine tasting and wine club pick ups from noon to 5 pm on November 14 and 15.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! During the holidays, we are offering a 20% discount on all 1.5 liter bottles (Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot, and Syrah) purchased at the winery on November 14 and 15. Why bring two bottles to a celebration when you can bring one big one?
November Wine Club Shipments
Wine Club shipments are ready. This shipment includes one bottle each of:
- 2013 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains
- 2013 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Pommard Clone
- 2011 Merlot Reserve Carneros
- 2011 Vintner's Select Reserve
Wine club members will receive these wines at a 30% discount and can purchase additional bottles at a 15-20% discount, depending on quantity purchased.
Introducing Vintner's Select Reserve
We are known for our single-vineyard, single-varietal wines, but we are mixing things up by introducing our first blend, Vintner's Select Reserve. This limited-production wine is included in the November Wine Club shipment. After fulfilling orders, we will have a small amount for sale at the winery. By combining Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet and Carneros Merlot, we have produced a blend with the fruitiness and softness of Merlot balanced by the structure and intensity of Cabernet. The wine features a colorful and festive label from local artist Sonya Paz.
Holiday Gift Suggestion
Do you need a gift for the holidays? How about a bottle of 2011 Villa del Monte Late Harvest Zinfandel? The grapes were given extra time on the vine, almost turning to raisins, in order to concentrate both the sugars and the flavors, while still retaining some acidity. After aging for 30 months in French and American oak, we bottled 96 cases of this deliciously complex and textured wine. With hints of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry jam, the wine is delicious when served with winter pears and a soft cheese.
