    We’re proud to announce the 2018 vintages of Formation Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are in stock and ready to ship! Both wines are now 100% Arroyo Seco AVA.

    Formation’s parent company won the 2019 California Green Medal Environmental Award and the winery is completely wind-powered. These wines are Off-the-Grid Good!

    About Arroyo Seco:

    Arroyo Seco is one of the smallest AVAs in California. It is a finite piece of terrain that has always been considered one of the most distinguished places to grow grapes in California. In fact, of the over 100 California AVAs, Arroyo Seco was one of the earliest to be recognized.

    Spotlight Wine & Winery of the Month

     Vino del Sol Update

    Jose “Pepe” Galante is widely considered the most important winemaker in Argentina’s history. Chief winemaker at Catena Zapata from 1976 until 2010, Pepe showed the world that Argentina could make world-class wines. Puramun is Pepe’s first-ever personal project owned by his family.

    Puramun means “harvest” and "search" in Mendoza’s indigenous Mapuche language. Each Puramun is a new challenge. A time for searching and finding. Nothing is the same, everything changes: the climate, the soil, the grapes, and even ourselves. Year after year we trek a new road, a labyrinth of grapevines that express through their precious fruit our devotion to the Valle de Uco terroir. Each Puramun bottle is the result of this passionate and endless search.

    Puramun Co-Fermented 2014

    Named a "Top Wine" of Argentina by Wine Spectator (’13) this wine features 67% Malbec and 33% Petite Verdot hand-picked together and co-fermented as a single lot, with 12 months in French oak barrels. The Petite Verdot added personality and firmness to the Malbec, which together created a serious wine with flavors of blue and dark fruits and a hint of minerality.
