{ Welcome }

For our September 2013 Cellar Door Club shipment, we feature three distinctive Iberian grape varieties—Albariño, Tannat, and Tempranillo—as well as our flagship Pinot Noir.


September 2013 Shipment

From Iberica to Burgundy, via Wine

Home to contemporary Spain and Portugal, the Iberian Peninsula has a 5,000 year history of wine culture. Of all the old world wine regions, the Iberian Peninsula has maintained its staunch commitment to its indigenous and traditional grape varieties rather than pursuing the so-called noble varieties. Spain and Portugal have a treasure trove of rare ancient grape varieties that are less familiar to consumers than Chardonnay and Merlot but are capable of producing delicious and distinctive wines.

We’re pleased to feature three Iberian varietals in our September shipment as well as our Santa Maria Cuvée Pinot Noir to highlight the array of wines that inspire Ken Volk in the vineyard and the winery. Delicious tradition and exciting new directions: we pursue both paths with focus and creativity to produce exceptional wines for your table, picnic, and cellar.
