2019 Mubbly

Regular price $18.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

Mubbly is not the Champagne of Beers, it's the Beer of Champagnes.  We make it in a winery and bottle it in a brewery.  It's a blend of stuff like French Columbard, Chardonnay, and Riesling that we pick at low sugars and then ferment to dryness in stainless steel.  When it's all done, we filter it across the patio of the winery into the brite tank at Third Window who puts the carb on it for us and then packages it up.

The result is an easy-to-drink (like right out of the bottle), easy-on-the wallet sparkling wine.  Just pop off the cap, and smash it.  You're welcome.

2018 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

Regular price $32.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

Our Pinot Noir is a made from some of Santa Barbara County’s great cool climate Pinot Noir vineyards. It’s a selection of barrels from Sanford & Benedict, Rio Vista, Riverbench, and Kick On Ranch. All the vineyard lots were fermented separately with as much as 100% whole clusters in a couple of the lots, to build in a little extra tannin and complexity.

The wine is crazy clear, pure, fresh and drinkable. It’s full of clean red fruits - loads of strawberries, raspberries, red currants, cherries and complex herby notes. Aromatically, there's heaps of dried herbs and bay leaves. The palate has ocean breeze acidity and great energy to ride along with its medium weight red fruits.

2019 Nault Rieslin

2019 Nault Rieslin

Regular price $28.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

There is Nault Rieslin really to ferment Cinsault and Riesling together… except that it’s tasty.  We made this wine by filling a tank with un-destemmed whole clusters of Cinsault and Riesling, and then the foot stomping began.  This super fresh glou glou was on skins for 10 days or so before pressing to old French oak barrels.  No additions of yeast or anything else, save for a minimum amount of SO2 at unfiltered bottling. We taste smokey cranberries, grapefruits, and pomegranates in this wine.

2016 Demetria Grenache

Regular price $40.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+

Demetria Estate is located above Foxen Canyon in the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. The property consists of 213 acres of rolling hills with 38 high elevation hillside acres under vine. The vineyard was planted by Andrew Murray in phases from 1990 to 2000, exclusively to Rhone varietals, and has been farmed Biodynamically since its purchase by the Zahoudonis family in 2005.

Biodynamic viticulture stems from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner, and are based on his spiritual / practical philosophy which includes understanding the ecological, the energetic, and the spiritual in nature. This type of viticulture views the farm as a cohesive, interconnected living system.

There is some debate as to the efficacy of biodynamic farming and whether it is hocus pocus or a real spiritual connection with the land. Undoubtedly, the additional commitment to following the practices and preparations of biodynamics forces the grower to spend more time and attention tending their crops.

In keeping with the spirit of the biodynamic farming practices, to make this wine, we hand harvested the fruit, and left 100% of the whole clusters in the fermentation after stomping by foot. We let fermentation start spontaneously, and we footstomped 1 time / day during a very long extended maceration of about 50 days on skins. The wine was pressed directly to neutral French oak and aged for 20 months.  


The result is exotic, floral and pretty with clove, red cherry, pomegranate, and herb aromas. The palate is plush and juicy cherry in the front with drying tannin, crushed red pepper, and a sturdy finish from all the stem contact.
