The Classics:

2018 Unoaked Chardonnay 

This refreshing white is a crowd-pleaser perfect for a cocktail party or appetizers. Our Unoaked Chardonnay is steel fermented to maintain a fresh fruitiness and a crisp finish that clears the palate with every sip. Pair this bottle with rich, creamy cheese, crab dip, butternut squash soup or a seasonal salad.

2016 Pinot Noir

When you need to appeal to a variety of taste preferences, this Pinot Noir is a great staple to have on the table. With bright notes of cherry and raspberry, and a spicy finish, it’s a great partner to roast turkey and chicken. For the vegetarians, a glass of Pinot Noir with sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts or chestnut stuffing is a winning combination. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

 

Light and Bright:

2017 Dry Riesling

Our Dry Riesling highlights the subtle tropical notes and sweet aromatics classic to this wine, but with a bright acidity that can stand on its own or next to the richest of foods. Pair it with baked brie, mashed potatoes, or creamed spinach. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

2019 Dry Rosé

Our Rosé is a great wine to pour your guests when they first arrive or when munching on cheese and appetizers. It’s vibrant, yet delicate, with aromas of watermelon and grapefruit that burst from the glass. For those who prefer to drink their dessert, this is also a great after-dinner wine that shines when paired with fresh fruit. 

 

The Heavy Hitters:

2017 Barrel Chardonnay

Our take on a California Chardonnay is barrel fermented for smooth, oaky aromas. This wine is packed with flavors of pear, stone fruit and butterscotch, with a lively acidity that balances all that richness. Pair it with buttery biscuits, deep fried turkey or creamy pasta. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

2017 Zinfandel

Nothing screams “holidays” more than a big, bold red wine that will warm you up from the inside. Our Zin comes from the renowned Lodi region of California, where old vines lead to concentrated, jammy flavors of blackberry, dried fig and cocoa. Pair it with candied yams, roast beef or even dessert! It makes an excellent accompaniment to dark chocolate. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

 

For the Host:

2015 Blanc de Blancs

When you want to bring a bottle of something special for the host or hostess, a Champagne-style sparkling in a great way to say “thank you.” Bright, crisp and lively with notes of citrus and golden apple, our sparkling wine is a special treat that pairs with just about anything. Enjoy it as an aperitif or an end-of-meal toast with dessert. 

2017 Cuvee Noir

This Cotes du Rhone style blend is a favorite among Old World wine lovers. It’s Grenache based, with Petite Sirah blended in for a flavor-packed, smooth red wine. It’s a special bottle you won’t find anywhere else, and the perfect gift for wine experts and novices alike.
