2013 Vintage Fall Release

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
(Let the good times roll!)

We've been very lucky to have had two consecutive amazing vintages here in California. And it might be hard to believe, but 2013 is even better than 2012. I know, I know - you're all tired of me saying how good the 2012s are, and now the 2013s, so... I'll keep it brief:

Come and get 'em!

We do apologize for the early release. We normally wait until August, but harvest (again) looks like it'll start very early this year, so we wanted to get this out before we got distracted by tons and tons of grapes. They're needy little buggers, and take up virtually all of our time once they arrive. We're also (again) getting lots of queries from our distributors about the new wines. Apparently they've heard the EVEN BETTER THAN 2012 talk as well. So we'd like to make sure that you, the most DISCERNING, INTELLIGENT, and dare I say ATTRACTIVE customers on the planet get to make your preferences known before we release allocations to distributors.

There were really great yields in 2013, so we'll be holding our pricing steady. We're consumers too, so we're aware how painful price increases can be. We're doing our best to keep prices as fair as possible. And we'll continue to avoid increasing prices for as long as we can.

As with the 2012 vintage release, we're offering only the mixed case of Pinot. We've pre-discounted the Chardonnays so that you get the best price from bottle one. We thought that'd be less confusing than having multiple mixed case options. Of course, that probably means it will add confusion, so we apologize ahead of time. We suffer from a disease we like to call... "it was clear in our head". So please be patient with us. And BTW... 2013 was really good for Chardonnay as well :)

The normal notes apply: The wines won't ship until Oct-Dec, weather permitting. You may specify to pick up your wines, in which case they will be available starting August 30th at our new Tasting Room in Buellton. And while we continue to stand behind every wine we make, we won't bail you out of jail, pay child support for babies conceived, nor take responsibility for any incriminating photos that result from even the proper use of our product.

These wines are now available for purchase to List Members through our on-line ordering system.

We Have a New Tasting Room!
