One time a year, we open our cellar doors and allow the public to taste and pre-order six wines that have not yet been released. This opportunity is called “Futures”, as the wines will be released in the future, whether that’s a few months down the road or one year later. Sharing samples of our most exclusive new vintages with our customers can be nerve-wracking, but it is also exciting to hear those first, unfiltered responses to our young wines. We invite you to take part in this annual program, whether you attend a tasting in the Beckmen family’s private residence or submit an order online.
Customers who purchase wines in the Futures pre-sale are guaranteed an allotted amount of wine; as soon as the wines are ready to be enjoyed, Futures customers will receive their wines. They’ll be able to enjoy the wines before our Wine Club members can, and before the wines reach any shop or restaurant. During the pre-sale, the wines are discounted by up to 34%, offering you the largest discount available all year. You can learn more about the history of Futures here.

Attending a Futures Tasting
We hope you’ll attend one of our Futures tastings, where you’ll be able to taste the six featured wines and enjoy a gourmet cheese plate in the Beckmen family’s private residence. The tastings are limited to 16 people per session and are held at 2:00pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from August 18th – September 17th. There is a $25 per person tasting fee; should you place an order, the $25 is credited back to you when your final Futures wine is released.
Placing a Futures Order
If you are unable to attend a tasting, you can place a Futures order starting August 18th.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 805−688−8664 ext. 211 to request an order form. You will be charged a $25 holding fee when you submit your order, which will be credited back to you when your final Futures wine is released.
