White Wine

2014 Riesling 

With floral aromas and hints of apricots, apples and quince fruit, this wine is great for drinking alone or with food

Red Wine

2012 Merlot 

This classic merlot has blueberry and dark fruit aromas with a balanced mouthfeel. Easy to drink alone or

with your favorite meat dish

Maribella 

Gold medal & Best of Class of Region

California State Fair 2014

Beautiful color and aroma set up the unctuous taste of this award winning blend. A medium body wine, with  a natural sweetness, it is a perfect fit for a luxurious dinner or just for sipping.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon  $28

The king of red grapes, our Estate Grown Cabernet

Sauvignon is an easy drinking Cabernet, that is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of tannins, acidity, alcohol and sweetness. Drink alone or pair with meat dishes, sausages or hard cheese.

Sparkling & Fruit Wine

Extra Dry Champagne   
100% French Columbard varietal. Pop open this bubbly and get transported to Champagne every time. This beautiful, semi-sweet light sparkling wine is a wedding and celebration favorite.

Apricot

Wonderful aromas of Blenheim apricot and a luscious fruity flavor makes this a fun wine to drink. Champagne for a Bellini!
