2020 Wonderland Project No. 9 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cab is grown on a west-facing slope, above the fog line, on the northern ridge of the Atlas Peak AVA. The palate is dense and complex, marked by a long and polished finish. All we can say is, there’s a reason this graces the wine list at the French Laundry.
Organic farming practices, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 1,000 cases produced.
2020 Domaine De Oliveira Lecestre Petit Chablis
This is an everyday staple. The palate is lively and crisp, but it isn’t quite as austere as other versions of Chablis. It has a creamy texture which makes it approachable and crowd-pleaser across the board.
Sustainable farming practices (Lutte Raisonnée), native yeast fermentation, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to reflect the perfect typicity of Chablis.
2020 No Name Santa Barbara County Chardonnay
This Chardonnay is a total CA babe. It’s vibrant and fresh with a silky palate and touch of sea salt on the finish. In short, it’s an all-around crowd pleaser.
Organic farming practices and only 90 cases produced.
2019 Flâneur Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
This is our gaux-to weeknight Pinot. It has a deep concentration of fruit and velvety texture that makes you just de-stress the second you take a sip.
Organic farming practices, dry-farmed, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered.
2019 No Name Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir
This Pinot is perfectly balanced. With regards to Burgundian Pinot Noir, this wine is rather Volnay-like, and finishes with stony minerality and soft tannins.
Sustainable farming practices and only 92 cases produced.
2021 Par Fore the Course New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is all about bright flavors, approachability, and thirst-quenching freshness. The flavor lingers, but the wine goes down fast. It is Marlborough, New Zealand to a Sauvy B TEE!
Certified sustainable farming practices through Sustainable Winegrowing NZ, which certifies all parts of the production chain including vineyards, wineries, bottling facilities, and brands.
2019 San Giorgio a Lapi Sangiovese Rosso
Like a newly blossomed flower, this wine is fresh and aromatic. Its bright acidity, serious structure, and long, herbal finish will make you want to take a bite of food. Pizza, pasta, or salami and pecorino anyone?
Sustainable farming practices, hand-harvested, and native yeast fermentation.
