Cali 12 Collection

Welcome to next level of your winemaking experience: our Cali 12 Collection.

Enjoy wines made from 100% unadulterated pure juice through a 12 week small batch fermentation process.

We proudly import only the finest wine juices from California’s Central Valley. Our Cali 12 Collection California wines are made with no adulterants or added chemicals so all you get is the natural goodness of California grapes. These fresh juices, sourced from various local grape growers, are cold pressed using state-of-the-art equipment and then shipped directly to us from the leading supplier of winery grade wine grape juices in that region. Combine that with the fact that Flying Fish Winery is the only on premises winemaking shop on the island specializing in small batch fermentations of fresh juice wines, and you end up with something truly special.

Each batch gives you 30 – 750ml bottles and takes roughly 12 weeks from start to finish. Please remember: these wines are not made from kits, and therefore can take longer to ferment out properly. You can’t rush perfection! We promise your wine will be worth the wait.

All wines benefit from being given time to age, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of these California wines when fresh. Let us help you discover your next experience in winemaking.

As Good As It Gets

Grape juice isn’t your only option. We also import whole grapes every year for natural fruit fermentation.. Made from 100% whole grapes, these wines have a jammy, juicy mouthfeel. You can choose between popular varietals and specialty grapes. These wines will knock your socks off!

Annual pre-orders begin in late July and early August.
