In the world of wine, there are bloggers, magazines, YouTube channels, influencers- on and on - that review wine. It's always a nice ego stroke to know that wines we have made scored well, BUT does anyone care? What's a good score? What does it mean? Does the wine's price matter in the score that it gets? Does the score help people decide what what they want, or help a winery sell wine?
In our opinion, it helps (maybe) give some extra validation to that wine. Otherwise, scores don't do all that much in the sea of wine. People would rather find a wine they love and share it with the people in there lives. Wine drinkers trust their tribe and the 'word of mouth' they hear if from. People want an experience and to crack open that wine, remember the friends they heard it from and the great time they had while drinking it!
Our job as a wine brand is to help make sure you all want to bring our wine (us) along with you the next time you're headed out to a friend's barbeque, concert in the park, etc.
Just in case you need a little nudge- our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc (Lake County/Napa County) just received a 90 pt score and "Value Pick" from one of the higher regarded wine reviews, and James Beard Award winners, Anthony Dias Blue. See the review here.
The Sauv. Blanc also received an 89 pt score from another well regarded publication, Wine Enthusiast. See it soon, in the October releases here - we are sure you'll remember to look it up.

Just kidding, we wouldn't do that to ya!
But will continue producing high quality, affordable wines that punch significantly above their weight. Once you are that dedicated to your craft, it's only a matter of time until people start to paying attention.
This time the Wine Spectator Magazine has given us a 90 point score for our 2020 County Cuvee Sauvignon Blanc and featured us in an article titled "8 Thrilling California Sauvignon Blancs Under $20"
It has been a rather eventful summer, especially for our new-release canned wines. Lots of retailers and restaurants hopped on the bandwagon, and now the “Snake Cans” are proudly displayed on shelves, in fridges and cold boxes across California, Kansas, Alabama, and Louisiana, with more states on the way.
Anyway, a few days ago we got the results from the 2021 International Canned Wine competition, and- once again- the results were great!
