Sangiovese Returns to our Portfolio After 25 Years

After 25 years, we are thrilled to bring San­giovese back into our port­fo­lio with the very lim­it­ed release of the 2018 San­ta Ynez Val­ley San­giovese. Only 225 cas­es were pro­duced, and since we last bot­tled this wine back in 1996, you’ll have to act fast to enjoy this wine. Only $24 per bot­tle when pur­chased as a case special.

To under­stand the answer to that ques­tion, we must first explain how our wines are crafted.
