How We Work

We are based on the California Harvest cycle so we get most of our fruit in early to mid October.

We sell 3 different quality levels of fruit. We have branded them California, Sonoma and Napa (think good, better, best).


At each quality level, we sell quarter, half and full barrels. At the Napa level we have American and French Oak options. The entire process takes about a year to complete (think October - for the Crush & Press, to the following August/September for Bottling).
