Our Estate Grenache is one of the most widely planted red wine grapes in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot dry conditions like in Spain, Southern France and here in Fairplay, CA.

This wine is anything but "petite". It is full of plum, blackberry and currant flavors. This wine goes well with stronger meats. Petite Sirah ages slowely and can survive fairly long cillarings of ten years or more.
The grapes for our estate late harvest Viognier were left on the vine for one month longer to achieve 31* brix. This elixir was fortified with V.S. quality brandy and raised in a French oak barrel for one year. This late harvest Viognier would be superb with creme brulee, cream puffs, or napoleons.
In 2012, we wanted to craft a wine with a small amount of Residual Sugar (3.5 Brix). Rich and opulent, please enjoy with decadent desserts, especially CHOCOLATE!!!.
