We hope you’ll consider taking advantage of our Futures program!

  • You’ll save money on the wines you buy
  • There’s opportunity for price appreciation later
  • You’ll be sure to receive our very best wines before they sell out

Every year, when the new vintage is still in barrel, we allocate a small percentage (about 15%) to Futures purchases; that is, while the wines are still aging and before they’re bottled, you may purchase it by the case with a 50% deposit.  This locks in a lower price than when the wine is eventually available to the public.

During subsequent visits, you can taste the wines as they age and develop to further hone your skills of appreciation. Once the wine is bottled, two or three years from the vintage date, a notice is sent to you with the balance and instructions for shipping or pickup.

You can also combine Futures purchases with current wines to obtain multiple case discounts. A nice advantage when you’re only putting down half on the Futures.

2015 “Concentrated and Vibrant … and Shortest Vintage in Decades!”

The Napa Valley has done it again!  Here we are, four years into the drought, with a 2015 vintage of exceptionally rich and vibrant wines.  Early on in the growing season weather conditions during “bloom” caused loose clusters with small berries resulting in low yields of fruit; 25-30% less crop.  In spite of low yields, 2015 vintage fruit created wines with great concentration, both dark in color and intensely rich in flavor and aroma.  Consistent heat throughout August and September caused harvest to progress early, fast, and furiously.

2015 will be remembered as one of our earliest harvests ever, with comparatively low quantities, yet notably high quality.

Here’s to a fantastic vintage, Cheers!
