Spring Means New Releases!

Don’t think we sit around all winter twiddling our thumbs… we keep busy winemaking and bottling!  We’ve got several new releases being offered in our tasting room, including our newest “Laughing Labs White” offering.  We felt the need to create something new in memory of our sweet lab Kia who passed away in January  It’s the perfect summertime refresher that can be enjoyed on it’s own, or mixed with cold sparkling water on ice as a spritzer!

Also newly released:

  •  ’13 Chardonnay aged in French Oak is a nice middle ground between our Zero Oak Chard and oakier ’12 Chard.  Come try a vertical tasting!
  • ’15 Cab Franc Rosé (almost sold out) – called “Nancee’s Cuvée” after our winery’s #1 fan of Rosé.  Nancee favors the Provençal style rosé, and winemaker Eric has managed to craft a rosé from local Cab Franc grapes that’s very similar.  Very light salmon color and sure to spirit you away to the south of France!
  •  ’11 Merlot – We’ve received many compliments on this underrated grape.  It grows beautifully here in our AVA and we’ve created an old world style Merlot that’s lush and soft bodied.  Perfect accompaniment to summertime meals…
  •  ’12 Bordeaux style Mèlange – a skillful blending on Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Merlot.  All locally sourced grapes too!  Small production – we’re running low already.  It’s fine to drink now, or cellar for future enjoyment.  

We’re open daily through October!  Hope to see you and hear your feedback on our creations – both new and old~
