The red Vernatsch grape is also known as Schiava which hails from the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. The vines are trained in the old Pergola system at altitudes ranging from 400 to 450 meters in elevation. Vernatsch is an addictive, lightly hued red wine that works wonders with appetizers and fish alike. Fermented in stainless steel tanks then transferred to old wood barrels to settle for around 7 months before bottling. Serve slightly chilled.

Domaine de Beauséjour has 27 hectares of Chinon AOC vineyards, and a total surface area of 93 hectares. The original farm was purchasd by Jacques Chauveau in 1951; his son Gerard inherited the property in 1968 and decided to plant vineyards; today, he and his son David produce the wines from 100% Cabernet Franc.This is cool climate, crisp Cabernet Franc as you would expect from Chinon. Smelsl and tastes of pomegranate and red plums, with a bit of ruby grapefruit, tamarind, green olive, and tarragon. Perfect wine for you, assuming you know and enjoy the Parisian Bistro, food-friendly, bright acidity style of Cabernet Franc.
Pretty deep colour. The nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of blackcurrant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness.
Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre
In 2016 Cleto Chiarli started a collaboration with local farmers in the Castelvetro area that have long embraced organic viticulture practices. These individuals are members of the Cantina Sociale di Settecani, with whom Chiarli has been partners with for many years prior to this project. Chiarli supervises and controls the quality of the farming and viticultural practices of the vineyards. The grapes are brought to Cleto Chiarli at the time of harvest and the Chiarli winemaking team proceeds with vinification.
After selective sorting of the harvested grapes before vatting on a sorting table, the bunches of grapes are vatted whole (no de-stalking or crushing).
They are vinified using traditional Beaujolais methods, where the bunches are kept whole throughout vatting, which lasts 7 to 8 days.
In this way we craft a ruby-coloured Beaujolais-Villages with pleasant red fruit aromas (raspberry, red currant, strawberry). The tannins are supple and blend in beautifully. This fruity wine will be tasty all the time of day.
Elegant ruby color with purple tints. The nose is fresh and pleasant with strawberry, blackcurrant and spices aromas (pepper). In the mouth, the entry is tender and elegant then ample and harmonious with silky tannins. An elegant red wine, fruity, light, easy to drink.
This wine will pair well with red meat, white meat, salads, cheeses and red fruits dessert. Perfect to accompany barbecues.

Grapes: Grenache, Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Marsanne, Viognier
The resulting wine is somewhere between a dark rosé and a light red. You get the floral aromatics from the Muscat, a little bit of spice from the Cab, and lush stone fruit from the Grenache. It's like Hi-C fruit punch on acid. It's ready for the party & ready for the izakaya. A Subject to Change signature. Serve chilled!
Method: We pick everything that’s ripe in two passes. Each pick represents between four and six varieties. The fruit was then foot-crushed, macerated whole-cluster for three to five days and then pressed to a tank. The juice was barreled down for fermentation and seven month elevage in a combination of neutral 225L barrels and 500L puncheons. The two lots were racked together for bottling. As always - unfined, unfiltered, no SO2.
The Love Red grapes are harvested early to highlight the fruit and preserve the acidity. The Carignan is a combination of whole cluster and destemmed fruit from three 70 year-old dry farmed vineyards in Northern California. The Valdiguié is 100% whole cluster and the Syrah is mostly destemmed. The wine was aged in a combination of neutral French oak barrels and concrete tanks. The Carignan delivers the blue fruit in the wine. Valdiguié brings out the brightness and lifting acidity. Syrah holds it together, adding depth and structure.
BLEND: 72% Carignan, 20% Valdiguié, 8% Syrah,
ALC: 12.5% alcohol
Pomagrana is a fruity, light and fragrant wine. On the nose, the aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with light flowery notes. In the mouth, it is easy to drink, very fresh and with a long finish.
Harvest is performed by hand. Once in the winery, the grapes are completely de-stemmed and macerated for around 15 days. After the pressing, the grapes ferment with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits. After the fermentation, the wine remains in the deposits on its fine lees for 4 months. It is bottled after a gentle filtering.
Winemaker Fredi Torres farms all of his vines organically with biodynamic principles and all of the winemaking is non-interventionist. The only thing ever added to the wines is a little sulfur at bottling. All ferments are with native yeast and there is no fining or filtering. The goal is to make wines with bright acidity, pure fruit and low alcohol.
Chambers and Chambers
VINEYARD: The Colombini Vineyard is a mid-century planting that was installed by Charlie Barra in 1942. Still in production, the Carignane block, off Road I in the Redwood Valley, is a bench land site that contains a diverse mix of Pinole series soils – a well-drained gravely mixture of clay with sedimentary materials. The 10 acre planting has been farmed by the Colombini family since the 1970s and has contributed to everything from sacramental wine to vineyard designated bottlings. Darin Colombini (2nd Generation) is the guiding hand that tends to the vines each year.
WINEMAKING: The handling was gentle, performing no more than two punch downs per day. It was apparent from the beginning that this wine would be special given the juice’s neon-magenta/blackened appearance which provided visual evidence of the potential and forced a delicate hand. The fragrant fermentation lasted a total of 18 days.
AGING: Wine was laid to rest for 12 months in 2 demi-muids. Both vessels were then racked and combined just 3 days prior to bottling.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The Love Red grapes were harvested in the second week of September to preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The Carignan and Syrah were both whole cluster fermented and destemmed in concrete and stainless tanks. The Valdiguié went under carbonic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 8 months in concrete and neutral French oak barrels.
VITICULTURAL AREA: The grapes come from 70 year old vines in Solano County’s Green Valley. This area is tucked between Napa and Suisun Valley. Parenti and Wirth Ranch each provide Syrah and Valdiguié for this blend. The Carignan comes solely from Parenti Vineyard. The grapes of each vineyard grow in clay loam soils and come from mostly dry-farmed and head-pruned vines.
BLEND: 77% Carignan, 15% Valdiguié, 8% Syrah,

- Sight Vermilion red color.
- Nose Very floral nose, notes of rosehip, red cherry, orange zest…

An elegant, original and inimitable personality. Rich in red fruit mixed with notes of licorice typical of the variety. Great harmony with anything from traditional pesto to charcuterie to cherry pie.
"Bright medium red. Pungently perfumed nose offers violet, lavender, Szechuan pepper, lemongrass, blood orange and small red berries. Then juicy and very fresh flavors similar to the aromas, plus a building licorice nose, linger impressively on the medium-bodied mouthfeel. Closes with magical, persistent inner-mouth perfume and truly exceptional clarity and cut. This sees no oak whatsoever and therefore the wine's magical perfume is really allowed to shine through. A real knockout of a wine and easily one of the two or three best Perricones I have ever tried." 95 Points Vinous
Method: The 2020 Tasty Waves Piquette is made by rehydrating the grape pomace (solids off of which the wine is pressed including skins and often stems) re-extract sugar, flavor and texture. The result is a very light and low-in-alcohol wine - think of it like the second steeping of tea - lighter but with many of the same flavors.
This one is like a fun, frothy Lambrusco-type beverage, with tart fruit and ripping acidity to cut through fat and salt -- which makes it a perfect companion for happy hour with a cheese/salumi board, or pizza, or taco night.
