  • Nebbiolo, with origins from Piemonte, is used in Italy for Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and is considered a world class red wine grape. The high tannins require aging where the wine will shift in color and a host of complex flavors develop. Aromatics of dried red rose petals and wet stone. Ample acidity and a bit bitter, flavors of tar and roses with cherry, baked brown pears , raspberry and black licorice. Harmonizes best with the richest, strongest flavored meats and stews, pork cheek ragu spaghetti as well as dry aged cheeses. This is a wine that only gets better with age. Very limited release, for our wine club members only.

  • Our grapes are from one of the top growers in California, Ann Kramer in Sutter Creek. Primitivo is our Italian expression of Cal-Ital Zinfandel and is known in Italy for its range of styles from Northern to Southern Italy. Shake Ridge Ranch, elevation of 1600-1800 feet, with deep, well-drained, river rap rock, mixed with Sierra Shale gives a lean and vibrant wine. Crisp, crunchy cherry and blackberry flavors. The aging in American Oak results in a soft vanilla elegance. Enjoy the aromatics of tart strawberries, vanilla, and stone with undertones of mild Italian herbs and coffee. Our first release of a Primitivo, with only enough for our special wine club members. Flavors of firm black cherry, violet and graphite. Tim could not stop thinking about what foods to pair-he recommends herb roasted chicken, crispy quail, braised rabbit cacciatore.

  • THE VASO DI MARINA STORY

    When my grandmother Marina Portalupi immigrated to Northern California from Piemonte Italy, she brought with her more than just her knowledge of winemaking. She also brought along the traditions and beliefs of how wine was meant to be enjoyed. She didn't believe good wine was something to be stored away under lock and key, occasionally enjoyed by a precious few. No, wine was a daily staple. As much as milk, eggs and bread. Something to be enjoyed regularly with friends and family. Just as she had done in Italy, when she opened Luna Park Grocery in San Jose, California, she kept a small barrel of her vino di tavola to serve in her store. Every day, customers would bring in empty milk bottles, or whatever vessel they had, to fill up and take home. Often that wine was passed around the table in jelly jars to be enjoyed by all. It is in honor of my grandmother and in her spirit that we make Vaso di Marina for you to enjoy as my grandmother intended! Rosato (rose') Bianco (white) available by request 707-395-0960 Food Pairings: It’s every day. It’s pizza. It’s tri-tip. Or a bacon cheeseburger. It’s the red wine for the simple, uncluttered times in your life.

  • Dolinsek Ranch, a magical vineyard planted over 109 years ago by the Frati family, has produced outstanding wines throughout this century. The soil is a rich sandy-Goldridge loam and is located just off the famous Laguna Road in Russian River Valley. Jim Dolinsek, owner and grower, had the chance to purchase the property 19 years ago and since then, has meticulously cared for each and every vine with a passion. Deep purple, with jam and spice on the nose, the 2018 vintage shows elegance and length, medium tannins. On the palette, lush liquor like blackberry fruit and white pepper for a truly unique sensory experience. Superb with grilled meats and sharp, earthy cheeses.

  • The inspiration for this very limited production (45 cases) wine came from the love of a few vines that winemaker Tim Borges has,  grown to love throughout the years of making wine from this vineyard.  Dolinsek Ranch, a magical vineyard planted over 110 years ago by the Frati family, has produced outstanding wines throughout this century. The soil is a rich sandy-Gold Ridge loam and is located just off the famous Laguna Road in Russian River Valley. Jim Dolinsek, owner and grower, had the chance to purchase the property 19 years ago and since then, has meticulously cared for each and every vine with a passion.  An exclusive barrel regime included aging 18 months in 50% new French Oak and 50% 1 year old American Oak barrels.  Aromas of deep raspberry framboise liqueur, vanilla and white pepper dominate the nose. On the palate, medium to soft tannins fill the mouth with a solid finish of intermingled fruit and allspice all supported by the underpinnings of solid acidity. A Zin lovers dream come true. Excellent aging up to 2024.
