Resist the Wine Orthodoxy, and become a vinous 1-percenter!

What About Pinot?

What was the best Cali Pinot to cross our palates in recent months? And if we bought a bunch of our recent fave — like, all of the rest of it? — could we pass the deal on to the good people of Berkeley? (Fuminophobes and Pinotphiles alike?) A few phone calls later? BAM.

We're Gonna Take You Higher

Can mountain magic be trapped in a bottle? Can a grape you've never heard of be something you absolutely need? Can the region renowned for making the best Pinot Noir in all of Italy... have a red grape that everyone there accepts is even better? Yes, yes, and yes! Wanna go higher? Elevate your mind (to 550-700m), and get one of the coolest alpine reds the whole world over!

1973 All Over Again

Organically farmed, micro-produced, old-vine white Burgundy? At the sort of price not seen since Watergate? Case up fast!

Grapes are not the Only Fruit

Ever want a grapebreak? Ever crave a crushable sparkler that weighs in at only 5.5% ABV... but is every bit as delicious as your fave pet nat? Ever wonder if there's more to Normandy than D-Day? Ever want the best single deal on no-sulfur-added, biodynamic bubbles we'll likely offer all year? Maybe it's high time you let a Norman conquer you!
