January 2020 Specials – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lots of great stuff to ring in the New Year! We have specials on the Cali 12 and Cru International collections, and two special releases from Restricted Quantities 2020 “Roaring Twenties” premium collection.

Cali 12 Collection

We are having a $20 OFF sale on our Cali 12 Collection wines!

These juices, sourced from various local grape growers, including Lodi Valley, are cold pressed using state-of-the-art equipment and shipped directly to us from the leading supplier of winery grade wine grape juices in that region.

Each batch yields 30 – 750ml bottles and takes roughly 12 weeks from start to finish. Please remember, these wines are not formulated as kits, and therefore can take longer to ferment out properly. One must not rush perfection! We promise, they will be worth the wait.

These Whites and Rosés will be perfect for spring and summer sipping, while the reds will be perfect for fall and winter.

Why not try something new this year? Allow us to help you select your next experience in winemaking.
