For the convenience of our customers, we offer both our Wine Lovers Club and our Mailing List. The Wine Lovers Club is for people who want to receive our wine on a regular basis at a discounted price; the Mailing List members are alerted once per year upon the new release of a wine or wines they have chosen.
The advantage of joining the Mailing List is to be next in line after Wine Lovers Club members for allocations of our winoe. You will be notified when our new releases are available and will have wine allocated to you if any is available after the Wine Club allocations have been taken.
Making wine the way we do with 3 year air-dried French oak barrels from small artisinal coopers is very expensive. By producing a smaller amount of wine, we can focus on selling our wine directly to consumers who appreciate the effort we put inside the bottle, particularly at our attractive price points, which are significantly lower than similarly scoring wines.
Unfortunately, our 2008 vintage, which we just completed, will only be about 3,000 cases. This is far less than planned due to a year of frost and uneven "set" (where the grapes fertilize themselves in the spring).
We will be releasing our 2008 vintage in the fall of 2011. Our expectation is that the wine will only be sold to our Inner Circle Mailing List, Wine Lovers Club, and selected restaurants in a limited number of markets in the United States.
You will receive an annual allocation for each of the wines you subscribe to. To remain active on each list, you will need to purchase at least one bottle each year of that wine. To maintain your allocation amount, you will need to purchase the full allocation each year.
You may an experience a waiting period before being added to a specific list, depending on the current membership demand.
We thank you for joining our community. Please come see us in Napa and enjoy our hospitality.
