California Harvest 2014

For our Fall 2014 California winemaking we are featuring California grapes from a variety of American Viticultural Areas. We offer the highest quality grapes at sensible pricing for our winemakers. Below, you will find a list of our featured varietals.  Each has characteristics that can lend suitably to your crafting a stand-alone varietal wine or creating your own special blend. The possibilities are endless when one contemplates the combinations of grapes. Whether your winemaking interest lies in crafting a Bordeaux style wine…an Italian Hearty Burgandy or Super Tuscan …or making a more exotic blend hint of Meritage or Opus One, the winemaking options using grapes from California are endless  and only limited by your palate and imagination.

Remember, it is in the ‘grape’ that the mystery and joys of California wine can be found!
