Horizontal Vs. Vertical Tastings

We freaking made it. 2018. We all have our resolutions, some of mine rolled back from last year (drink more water than wine) but we will see if this actually sticks.  One resolution that is sure to be an easy one to follow, is to be more adventurous with wine. The best part about wine is experiencing new wines with friends. Some of my favorite wines are paired with hilarious to sentimental memories with my loved ones!  Continue »

The Many Faces of Pinot

How many Pinot's are there? If you have ever ventured into the best aisle in the grocery store (wine aisle), you have probably caught on that there are a few different colors that Pinot showcases. Let's talk about one of my favorite varietals of all time, shall we?  Continue »

Taste Like a Pro!

My favorite hobby is wine tasting (shocker, I know)! Summer is the high season for wine tasting, with endless sunshine and a glass of wine, talk about heaven! There is a scary stigma with wine tasting, if you've never been, it can be intimidating! Many people think you need to be a professional, but listen, we are all there for one purpose and it certainly isn't to look at the glass.   Continue »

You know when you finally finish a long project and feel so accomplished? That's how we feel when we bottle our wine! Lillie, our Director of Vineyard Operations, and I went up to make sure our wine made it into the bottle, then the case, and soon into your glass!  Continue »

Dessert Wine, You So Fine

Wine is great for any time of day; morning, noon, night. You name it, there is a wine that perfectly matches the time. Quite honestly, I could make wine a full meal easily. Champagne/sparkling for an appetizer, sauvignon blanc for a first course, pinot noir/sangiovese for a second course, Malbec/syrah for a third course, then port for dessert. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The one thing I get asked all the time is what deciphers a dessert wine from just a sweeter wine and what is the difference in dessert wines, anyways?  Continue »

What Makes Great Wine?

All of this rain is making Malibu look more like Ireland than a beach town (no complaints!) We are being replenished and our wells and lakes are feeling full again. This is also a great start to our year, rain early on in harvest is exactly what we need to start a great vintage year. As Lillie mentioned, we have been pruning our vines, gearing them up for spring. We hope that this rain continues (since we are looking to be at least halfway out of our drought!) but slows as spring emerges. The biggest indicator of a good year will be the weather. From bud break to harvest, we rely on the weather to help us create a beautiful wine to offer in the coming years.  Continue »

Diet Friendly Wine!

It is finally February; I have never been so excited to be done with the first month of the year! Last month I tried and failed to stick to the Whole30 diet that basically every woman on Instagram was doing. I can take out sugar, carbs, dairy, even food from my diet, but wine? You must be taking crazy pills. The wine guy at WholeFoods would send out a search party if he didn’t see me for a month, or even a week for that matter. You can still drink a glass of wine a night and be your healthiest, fittest self. You just have to be smart about the type of wines you are drinking. Here are a few tips to keep your diet and wine consumption in sync...  Continue »
