“I believe, deep within my core, that the Sierra Foothills has the ability to produce great wines from Mediterranean style varietals that can compete on the world stage!” – Derek Irwin, Winemaker
Celebrating good times with great friends just got a whole lot easier. The next time you’ve got something to toast, roast or boast about, open one of your favorite NV Wines and get the party started in style. Craving a wine that was crafted specifically to seduce, tantalize and tempt your palate? You came to the right place.
What does it take to make a top shelf wine? It all starts in the vineyards. Each of our NV wines is hand-crafted exclusively from estate-grown grapes harvested in our Sierra Foothills vineyards. The elevated location – with its many different microclimates and soil types – is ideal for our Italian, Rhone and Bordeaux varietals. Abundant sunshine during the day and cool evening breezes enable the grapes grown in these vineyards to ripen very slowly, resulting in concentrated flavors. In our cellar, our talented winemaker works his magic – deftly blending several different grapes together to give each NV wine its own unique flavor profile. This combination of exceptional quality grapes and expert winemaking in the cellar translates into a sisterhood of stellar wines that are simultaneously fresh, flirtatious, complex, and elegant.
Uncork White Oleander, our bewitching white blend of Viognier, Muscat Canelli, Roussanne and Marsanne, to pair with grilled seafood or your favorite appetizers. Grande Violette, a captivating mix of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache is amazingly complex, a worthy match for lamb chops or beef kabobs. Deep, dark Nightshade, our blend of Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, is a great pick for pasta, grilled steaks or rosemary chicken. That leaves Dahlia Noir, an intense and flavorful combination of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Mourvedre – just the thing to pour alongside your spiciest baby back ribs.
Open one of our wines or try them all! Your palate will do a happy dance as it falls under the spell of our uniquely flavorful and delicious NV wines. But don’t forget to share: We’re betting your friends and family will love NV wines just as much as you do, so spread the love around.
