from the Vineyards

Below are the wines that are available:  the Library Wines and the 2009 Current Releases.

We used to have these PayPal buttons that you could click-on, and then that system went flooey.
Then I realized, it is much better for folks to call so I get to know them a bit and
find out what they really like, and that way I can make sure they are getting that.
So... in keeping with our old school way of doing things, please call.

707 933-4404

You can call day or night because this number goes directly into a message device,
then I will call you back.  Please leave your time zone so I don't inadvertently disturb you.

You may be wondering why we are still able to present the 2003 to the 2007 vintage when
several wineries have already bottled their 2011's and have released them.
That's cuz we have a Library.
And the reason we have a library is... as mentioned, we are old school.

And because of that, we think you will enjoy the wines more when they have aged,
at least a couple of more years.  They just taste so much better.
Our general policy is barrel age for two years, then bottle age for two years;
these wines become known as our Current Release wines.
The exceptional barrels (all wines are single barrel bottlings) are put into the Library
and last as long as they are available, however, they do not discount with your level
of Wine Club participation like the Current Release wines do.
Our wines are only available through the Wine Club, so we can
sell them at the rate which we think is best for the wine and your pleasure.
We are more than happy to age them on our nickel, not yours.

We have some nice surprises down there in the cellar for you.

Note :   we have made the assumption that you know these wines or know us.
We have precious few reviews because we believe that reviewing wines with the 100 point scale dis-serves
the wine, winegrower, and winelover.  It is the case that when we were starting
up and courting third-party-endorsement, all of the reviews were quite flattering.

We now have an annex to our Library...   "THE LITER LIBRARY"

It comes about because we can no longer get liter bottles of the right shape, color, and closure.
And God knows we tried.
We have noticed that one of the advantages of putting wines in the Library is that it restrains sales.
Which has a distinct advantage when we want to drink older wines with guests.
I think you get the picture, now you just have to take the time to be our guest.
So these wines are here for sentimental reasons, not because they have achieved real Library status.
The real Library has the best wines we make, not the best-of-the-vintage,
but for some magical reason, they rose to a standard for which we are quite thankful.
