Origin is a joint venture between John Hurley and Jason Rasmussen, two friends from opposite coasts with a joint passion for good food, great wines, and the relationships the two foster. Wines made at Origin are crafted in conjunction with historic vineyard sites, talented producers, and contemporary artists, all of whom work together to create a final product that promises its consumer an exquisite, multi-sensory experience. All of the wines at Origin are made from sustainably-farmed fruit with zero additives. The company is based in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a terroir of which the duo believes creates textured, coastal-influenced wines of quality and balance. According to John and Jason, Origin was created to help the current generation see life through a glass of wine. The label was hand painted by RF Alvarez.
The most striking thing about this Pinot Noir is how smooth and soft the palate is. This is a very approachable burgundy. It’s ready to drink now, but will continue to age beautifully over the next 10 years.

Extremely limited availability! Emidio Pepe has a cult following for his non-conventional winemaking techniques that have made the estate and wines legendary. Major wine publications have anticipated that this wine will reach its peak drinking window from 2013-2031 – meaning now’s the time to jump!

This full-bodied yet vibrant Barolo is definitely one to lay down in the cellar, though we wouldn’t blame you for popping it now and enjoying with a hearty Italian-inspired feast amongst friends. Voerzio wines are deemed some of the most textured and deeply flavored expressions of Nebbiolo in all of Barolo.
By law, wines labeled as Barolo must age for three years prior to release, 18 months of which must take place in oak.
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.
