Our wines are made from grapes that we grow ourselves. Most of our effort is in the vineyard, where we devote considerable time to fine tuning the balance between the leaf canopy and the fruit. Not too much crop, not too little, just the right amount for the best flavors that our site can produce. Our winemaking practices are minimal. No extended maceration. We use only neutral French oak barrels in order to minimize oak flavor.
Please note that our minimum order is 3 bottles (for 750 ml bottles). If you want to order a combination of wines that totals at least 3 bottles but some of the individual items are only 1 or 2 bottles, we’ll start the order for you and then send you a link to a secure shopping cart. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you want to order. (And if you haven’t ordered from us before, please tell us your address.)
Safe shipping: Until early October your wine order will travel by air and will be delivered in the morning, when most places are still cool. We provide this service for the same price as ground shipping. (Not available for CA, OR, NV destinations)
We use the FedEx Controlled Temperature Wine Shipping Program. Once a week, FedEx consolidates orders at their Napa warehouse and then sends them by air, under temperature controlled conditions, to its major hubs across the country. From there the wine is delivered via FedEx Priority Overnight service to your address. The wine travels under temperature controlled conditions until the very last leg (from your local FedEx terminal to your address). For the last leg, it travels in a regular FedEx Express truck and is delivered by 12 noon to most US addresses (later for some rural or remote areas). Orders received by 12 noon on Monday (Pacific time) will depart from Napa the following weekend.
