2019 Mubbly

Regular price $18.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/

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.

2019 Blanche

Will not ship until July 5, 2020
Blanche is made from hand-picked Old Vine Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from the Jurassic Park Vineyard on Foxen Canyon Road in Santa Barbara County. This wine is delicious upon release, and is intended to be drunk now, but those with patience will be rewarded over the next 2-3 years as it picks up creamy weight and honeyed complexity.

2019 Hofer

Regular price $28.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+

HOFER - Cucamonga Grenache

Hofer Ranch is a special oasis that's about 45 miles to the east of LA. It's a Grenache-planted beach sand, own-rooted, head-trained vineyard that's been farmed organically since it was planted in the 1915. After prohibition, the ranch grew to 900 acres, and it sent fruit across the country in boxcars. All that remains today is 5 acres of sand wedged next to the Ontario airport & a field of industrial warehouses. The wine is punchy (like it looks and tastes like Hawaiian Punch), funky, & has loads of sun-kissed, juicy cherry fruit. Put a chill on it for extra fun.

2019 Nault Rieslin

Regular price $28.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/

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.

2019 Bright White

Drink Riesling!  There's no need to be scared of it (can you believe some people are?).

You Got This.  It's dry riesling. It's made with fruit from the glorious Santa Barbara Riesling site - Kick On Ranch - in Los Alamos.  We make 8 different passes through our 2 acre block during harvest, hand picking early in the morning and whole-bunch pressing each time.  The juice is fermented long and cold in stainless steel to maximize freshness and pump up those beautiful clean smells.  The wine tastes like you squeezed a lime on a wet quartz crystal after using it to smash up white flowers.  It's super quaffable, and just the slightest bit spritzy from short aging in stainless before bottling.

2019 Rosie P's Pale Pink

Regular price $29.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/
Will not ship until March 13, 2020

We make our rosé by hand-picking the fruit at night and whole bunch pressing the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignane, and Cinsault fruit after foot-stomping and a short maceration. The vineyard sourcing is from Santa Ynez vineyards including Estelle, Demetria, and Camp Four. 

Our Pale Pink Rosé is meant to be drunk now. Its appearance is a genuine reflection of its light, clear and delicate flavors. The wine has a cool strawberry mint aromas and lemony, tangy, juicy fresh acid. This is the ultimate lunch wine - lightweight and built for soaking up sunshine and company.

2016 Fizz

Regular price $24.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $79+
/

Sparkling Shiraz is a treat!

We make this wine by barrel aging a rich, ripe syrah for about 20 months in French oak.  The Syrah is made from some of our favorite ranches around the county, mostly Ballard Canyon.

After aging, the wine is racked to a tank at the brewery next door and force carbonated.  Just prior to bottling, we added a small amount of sugar and yeast.  A secondary fermentation in the bottle took place and the wine was conditioned in the bottle for about 3 months. 

The wine is fizzy black, with a magenta mousse.  Aromas of black currants, black berries, chocolate, cherries, and strawberries jump right on out of that glass and tickle the nose.

Head's up!  This is a 500 mL bottle.

White Zin Saves Lives.  

You see, Zinfandel was first planted around the turn of the century, and the planting of Zin boomed soon after, becoming the most widespread variety in California.  These old Zin vines are treasured now, but for a long time after Prohibition, and the Great Depression, the fruit from these OG vineyards was used in the cheapest, lowest quality wines, and the demand was so low that many growers began tearing them out...

Until the 1970’s when an accidentally stuck fermentation (that thing when the yeast dies before all the sugar is converted to alcohol) was bottled sweet.  That sugary nectar became an instant hit with grocery store consumers, and the popularity of White Zin gave those old vineyards a new lease on life and a new home for the fruit.  White Zine still accounts for 10%! Of US wine sales.  


Debra is our homage to ‘White Zin’ - the most basic of blush for all you basic babies. Think ‘White Zin’, but dry and good. It’s named after Debra from the Beck song, who I imagine to be a big fan of the blush.  
                                                            
Debra is light, refreshing, and crisp. We only bottled 5 barrels of this wine that smells and tastes like strawberries, watermelon rind, dust, and tangerine.

Three Things About Us

We think that wine is a treat.

It's pleasure.  Wine is fascinating and fun.  Wine is not something that should feel hard, and nobody should feel dumb or bad about it.

We are here to include you in wine.  This Municipality is a village for anybody who wants to enjoy fermented grape juice, without pretnesion.

We know that perfect wine does not exist

...but that doesn't stop us from trying to make it.  We are always trying to do a little better than last year.  We read what the season is doing, and apply our experience to make wines with as little input as possible.

We believe in long term relationships with our vineyard partners, getting to know our rows on these sites a little bit better every year.

We believe in working with growers who take care of the land and employ farming practices that are sustainable, organic, and biodynamic.

We make a whole range of wines

... that cover as many wine drinking occasions as possible - and we are constantly experimenting with new ideas.

You can start exploring our Muni Wines or our Potek Wines on the site now to see what we're talking about.
