The Perfect Sweater Weather Reds (and a White!)

Posted: Oct 18, 2021

As we watch the vines turn from vibrant green to a daz­zling spec­trum of orange and red, our vine­yard crews are hus­tling to bring into our cel­lar the last of the grapes that will soon become the 2021 vin­tage. Yep, it’s that time of year again. A time when the sun dips below the hori­zon a lit­tle bit ear­li­er than the day before, the leaves flut­ter in a stream on the wind, and there is a brisk chill in the air — it’s fall!

With the fall sea­son comes a new occa­sion to dive into a selec­tion of new release wines. Our 2021 Quar­ter 3 Wine Releas­es are pro­duced in extreme­ly lim­it­ed quan­ti­ties and are only avail­able direct­ly from our Los Olivos win­ery. We’ve hand-select­ed four wines that will pair per­fect­ly with every­thing from root­ing on your favorite foot­ball team to shar­ing pump­kin pie with friends and family.

Just so you know, these small-pro­duc­tion wines are shared exclu­sive­ly with our wine club mem­bers before they become avail­able in our online wine shop — and they often sell out! Becom­ing a mem­ber of our wine club is the only way to ensure you’ll have a deli­cious glass of these exclu­sive wines at hand, ready to warm you up on a chilly fall day. Learn more about our wine club options here.
