Bonny Doon Vineyard is a wine producer located in Santa Cruz on California's Central Coast and is well-known for its unconventional array of wines with quirky labels. The proprietor, Randall Grahm, is considered to be one of California's original "Rhône Rangers", and helped popularize grape varieties like Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Winery note: "In appearance, almost Cate Blanchettish in its pale elegance, a beautiful subtle salmon color (the wine, not Cate). On the nose, subtle suggestions of rose hips, linden flower, black currant as well as a slightly toastiness (methinks perhaps due to the extended bâtonnage and lees contact). On the palate, wonderful bracing natural acidity, good weight and comforting viscosity. Some discreet floral and fruity suggestions, (mostly ribes with background black-cherry notes). Let us presently offer a simple prayer: While virtually all of the ’18 vintage Vin Gris will be consumed within a year of purchase, may there be a few smart cookies who put the wine aside for several years to see it reach its full potential (and will be enormously well rewarded for doing so)." *Biodynamic*
Sourcing Sauvignon Blanc fruit from all over Napa Valley gives the wine great complexity in aroma and flavor. The nose is fresh, with aromas of guava, green apple, lemon, lime, white peach, lemon grass, green melon, and orange blossom. The palate is soft and juicy with flavors of banana, Meyer lemon, pineapple, mango, lemon meringue, cantaloupe, and grapefruit. The wine finishes with a bright acidity, a touch of minerality, and a nice creamy mid palate texture.
Danielle ferments our Sauvignon Blanc with 10 different strains of yeast in new and used French oak, concrete egg, stainless steel tanks and drums. Fermenting the juice in stainless steel preserves the wonderful, varied fruits of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The portion of juice that is fermented in oak barrels and concrete gives the wine a texture and creaminess, balancing the natural bright acidity of the grape.
Tropical notes of juicy Satsuma, ripe kiwi and mango are highlighted by aromas of candied lemon peel, apple blossom and refreshing minerality. The palate supports the nose, revealing the Stainless winemaking with its round, weighty mouthfeel. Crisp acidity and flavors of white nectarine, papaya and key lime pie round out the clean, lingering finish.

Two distinct vineyards combine in this vintage of Farmhouse. The Oakley vineyards run along the shores of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. The vines root deep in the sand-soil and produce intense fruit. The Sonoma Coast vineyards experience foggy mornings and sunny afternoons bringing out the bright fruit flavors and deep color.
Bright but full-bodied, Farmhouse Red combines jammy boysenberry with mild pepper flavors
Torrontes is the signature white wine of Argentina, dating from early vineyards first planted in the 1800s. DNA research has shown that the varietal is a cross between the Mission grapes of Galicia, Spain, and Muscat of Alexandria. This popular expression of Argentina is growing in acclaim around the world, popular for a light, refreshing wine with Muscat notes redolent of jasmine and orange blossoms. Excellent as an aperitif, it also finds a welcome place with delicate first courses.
About the Wine: There is not much Roussanne, one of the Rhone Valley’s premier white grapes, grown in California. This wine is sourced from grower Larry Mettler’s vineyard in Lodi. Whole cluster pressed then fermented in neutral oak with native yeast. It was bottled after relatively short barrel aging (6 months), which we believe maintains purity of fruit.
Tasting Notes: The wine serves up a wonderful mineral core with bright acidity for good structure. Hints of stone fruit, citrus and jasmine give it a freshness that lingers long on the palate.
Selected from our ripest vineyards located on chalky soils, this full flavored Viognier expresses the true varietal characteristics: intense and charming white pear and apricot aromas combined with a delicate and perfumed palate.
The vineyard is situated on three gently rolling hills. The Chardonnay variety is planted on mainly clay-limestone soils and the property also has a proportion of sand and clay, that produces very fine, aromatic whites.
Harvested fruit is cleaned and then put into temperature controlled vats. Once selected yeasts have been added, the musts are fermented for approximately two weeks at low temperature. When the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the wines are racked once and put back into vat where they are aged on their lees for 3 to 5 months. They are kept in vat until bottling and only blended at this point.
This delicious wine incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musque and Sauvignon Gris which add a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents aromas of pineapple, ripe pear, and some floral notes. On the palate, flavors of Meyer lemons, tangerines and mineral notes come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish. Stainless steel fermentation was supplemented with small amounts of chestnut, acacia and French oak barrels adding additional character and nuance to this delicious wine. Seamless from start to finish, this is an elegant and refined Sauvignon Blanc.
"This is a voluptuous style, fleshy and fulfilling in ripe pineapple and papaya, evocative of tropical shores. Bristling acidity complements the fruit, as a wave of creamy vanilla picks up steam on the lengthy finish."- WE
Fresh as a slap across the face, bright as the morning sun and clean as a glacial lake. This light-bodied Gruner Veltliner from the Austrian grower Franz Etz makes music with its layers of fruit notes and tickles you with perky acidity.
Pairs well with with beef, lamb or poultry.
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
This was a wonderful vintage which produced an incredible Chardonnay with great potential for aging. The fruit aromas of peach and pear are enhanced with hints of toasted oak, thyme and caramel. The wine is very full-bodied, with flavors of ripe peach and tropical fruits, with a rich, thick finish. The oak is very well integrated, adding light toast to the aroma and accentuating the wine’s richness with flavors of creamy vanilla and toffee. This Chardonnay can be enjoyed on its own or with anything that calls for rich, full-bodied vin blanc.
This pink Bandol is adorned with a beautiful color with peach reflections. Its nose, very expressive, distills powerful and racy scents of peach, nectarine, grapefruit, as well as spicy notes.
On the palate this wine presents a nice array of flavors. First restrained, it quickly reveals the essence a Mourvedre rosé, with good structure and finesse, with a tender salty freshness. It is a rich, complex and well balanced wine.
A crisp, expressive, medium-bodied wine. Vibrant aromas of quince and tropical fruit. On the palate, fresh stone fruit and apple flavors are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality. A versatile food wine that will pair well with poultry, shellfish and vegetable dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Ages beautifully over 2-5 years.
A modern style emphasizing the softer Pinot Noir-like Characteristic of Pinotage. The wine is ruby-garnet red with a hint of purple. This Pinotage shows pleasing aromas of mocha chocolate and roasted coffee beans, followed by juicy flavors of red-berries, nutmeg and vanilla spice on the palate.
The sweet fruit flavors of the medium-bodied Pinotage make it an ideal match for spicy food, pizza, smoked pork and flavorful venison dishes, or delicious just by itself. Serve at a cool room temperature.

Meiomi was founded in only 2006 by fifth generation winemaker Joe Wagner, of Caymus family fame. Meiomi means "coast" to the native coastal dwelling Wappo and Yuki tribes. Their Pinot Noir is produced from grapes sourced in California's Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara counties, some of the best winegrowing regions for producing world-class Pinot Noir. This is thanks to the dense fogs and brilliant sun, to the high winds, cool coastal air, and diverse terrain. Each of the vineyards chosen for this wine offers the best expression of their respective appellations, carefully blended to achieve balance, complexity, and richness of flavor yet remain an approachable, value-priced bottle.
A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir. Made from 60% Monterey County (dark plum, savory edge, black tea leaves, fleshy texture), 23% Santa Barbara County (bright red fruit, baking spices, cranberry, creamy viscosity), and 17% Sonoma County (Bing cherry and strawberry, earthiness, mid-palate weight).
