At the the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, American wine buyers were seriously concerned that a 100% tariff on wines from the European Union would create a major shift in the US wine industry. Winophiles knew this would affect their ability to purchase and enjoy European wines on a day to day basis. So, Sara Schneider, writer for the Robb Report, put together a list of incredible American wines that can hold their weight against classic European wines. We were so incredibly happy to find our 2017 PMV Block Six Syrah included in this list!

We’ve always recommended gifting wine during the holiday season. Who wouldn’t want to unwrap a bottle from a hard-to-find producer, or try a new varietal or style you’ve never tasted before? Better yet, what if the winery was certified biodynamic and you were able to enlighten the receiver to the most natural way of farming in the world? A great wine like this is impressive to receive as a gift, plus you know the receiver will be creating wonderful memories as they savor the bottle’s contents.

Decanter is one of the oldest and most prominent wine publications in the world. Since they are based in the UK, it is not often our wines or vineyards are featured in their articles. Thus, we were ecstatic to find not only one but three of our wines included in their recent piece “Ballard Canyon AVA and must try wines”, written by Matthew Luczy.
