Like hiking in the woods on a hot day with a picnic of freshly cut red fruits in your cooler. It’s about 80% whole cluster so chill it down for a refreshing quench post hot day of working outside or sip it for the first red on a night out with people you love.

“Âmevive is a small winery and vineyard based in Santa Barbara County. My partner and I farm a historic 10 acre vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA home to Syrah, Mourvedre, and Marsanne planted in 1971. We farm with the environment in mind using biodynamic and regenerative organic practices. We actively rotate chickens, sheep, and ducks throughout the vineyard, and we are completing our 3rd year of no till. I add nothing but occasionally minimal sulfur to my wines and they are always unfined, unfiltered, and made with intention. I like to say that I make natural wines for the classic palette. I’m passionate about the natural world, keeping the wild wild, and making tasty wines that are good for both the planet and our bodies!” – Alice Anderson, winemaker

CENTRAL COAST, CALIFORNIA
When we speak of Central Coast, CA were including numerous diverse regions from Santa Cruz down through Santa Barbara counties. This encompasses smaller areas such as Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, Monterey AVA, Paso Robles AVA, Santa Maria Valley AVA, Santa Ynez Valley AVA, and Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Central Coast is responsible for many great value wines from a multitude of grape varietals depending on the climate within the specific designated areas. From the coastal AVA’s with influence from the fog and cooling effects, you will find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The inland AVA’s are much warmer, like Paso Robles, so look here for outstanding Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Rhône-style blends.
Forget what you thought you knew about Riesling. This natural, skin-contact expression from Domaine Bohn shows a whole ‘nother side of what the variety can do – and now with over ten years of age on it, a brand new layer of complexity is settling in.
Orange wine lovers, this is a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. Due to its age and natural vinification, we recommend decanting before enjoying.
This is an incredibly pleasant and interesting wine with hints of citrus & stone fruit, sweet smoke and hazelnut. The depth of flavor continues for an impressively long finish that never stops developing. Drink now or lay down for another 5-10 years. This wine has the structure to age, but is drinking beautifully now as well.
This wine would be wonderful with a buttery, lobster linguine topped with lemon and fresh herbs.
THE FIND OF ALL TIME! Petite Arvine is a rare grape for California that originally hails from the Valais region in the Swiss Alps. It has a silky texture with refreshing acidity. This will be at our Thanksgiving tables!

Corsican rosé? Say no more. Think of it like sun-drenched Provence with a touch of island flare in the best possible way.
