Our Top 20 Picks from the April 30 Vintages Release

As much as we look forward to Spring, the frustrating about this season is how it can tease you with warm – nearly hot – sunny days, and then just when you’re feeling the comforting, Jacuzzi-effect of nice weather, Mother Nature slaps you into submission with rainy, cool days that barely hover above freezing let alone crack...

Our Top 20 Picks from the March 19 Vintages Release

If you’re familiar with biodynamics, the philosophy that we are influenced by lunar cycles and that there is preferred days to harvest, drink and eat for maximum success, then you likely won’t be surprised to read that these tasting notes were probably written on flowering, or tasting, days. If you are a bit in the...

Our Top 20 Picks for the March 5th Vintage’s Release

This week Vintages is looking to red-hot California as the focus of this release.

Our Top Wine Picks from the February 20 Vintages Release

Cheaper & Better Wines

We have a secret. When we go wine shopping, we like to play a game.  It’s called the Cheaper and Better Game. The rules of this game are simple: find the best wines we can for $15 and under. Of course, we also invest in higher end wines, that we save for special occasions. but...
