Beau Vigne Reserve Cabernet

The ratings for our 2015 vintage have finally been published and we couldn't be more excited to share the results! For our 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon we scored an astounding 99 points! We had Jeb Dunnuck of Boulder, Colorado rate the wines. Jeb has been rating wines throughout the world since 2008 and was brought under the wing of Rober Parker himself in 2013. Jeb made the decision to leave The Wine Advocate in early 2017 to follow his passions for rating wines as an independent wine critic. 

The review we received on the 2015 Reserve Cabernet grouped Beau Vigne with the top tier of wines in the Napa Valley and is "weightless, elegant and ethereal." While we wish there was more of the 2015 Reserve to share with all of our loyal customers, we were sold out of this limited case production wine early in 2017. 

For those of you who would like to have the opportunity to purchase the 2016 vintage, we have a Grand Vin Wine Club that puts you first in line to purchase a case of Reserve, and an additional case of high rated wine such as Estate, Guest Cottage Owners Reserve or the Cult. Once your order for those two cases have been placed you will receive a magnum of the second wine selection free!

If you aren't a case buyer that is ok too! We will also be offering the Reserve and other rated cabernets throughout the year. The Reserve offering is on January 17, 2018 so if you are not on our mailing list and want a chance to buy before we are sold out please join our mailing list and don't miss out on next years Reserve!

Haypress Zinfandel

With the official release of the Haypress Zinfandel just days away, we'd like to share with you the story and tribute to a great man and winemaker here in Napa Valley. My grandfather, Martin Garzoli, a Swiss Italian immigrant, arrived in Napa in 1915. He found employment working long hours on the haypress in a local farm. Although his hours were long and he surely must have been exhausted at the end of the day, Martin had a love for wine and a desire to make the best wine he could. He would use the barn on the property he tended to store and cultivate his wines. He had an affinity for Zinfandels. Last year I began this Zinfandel as a tribute to not only my heritage but the heritage of Napa Valley and the very roots of the wine country I love.

We are set to start shipping all preordered Haypress Zinfandel on the 31st of July and it is truly one of the prettiest Zinfandels I have ever made. This wine meets all the criteria for a spectacular zin and at only $55 a bottle you'd be crazy to miss out on this vintage!
