"Did you folks realize that Grenache graced California's soil back in 1860, a mere 14 years after the Golden State even became a thing? At one point, it stood tall as the second most prolific grape variety in this sun-soaked land, and for damn good reasons. This grape is as tough as they come, yielding bountiful harvests and soaking up the California sunshine like it was made for it. Can you dig where we're headed with this? It's a match that practically had the heavens themselves orchestrating.

Switch on and drop back into 1969. That's the groove this wine love child dances to. Our Carbonic Grenache leeds the luscious, fruity ecstasy of carbonic maceration with the timeless allure of bitter cherries and bay leaf from the old school. Toss in some coriander, a bucket of blood orange, a dash of twizzlers, and voila, you've got yourself a bona fide banger!

Always (and only) minimal Sulfites added" - Guthrie Family Wines

Vibrant Wines from Organic Grapes

We could bore you with a long story. If we did, it would be a romantic one telling you how we met working harvest and made out behind the press, or how we dreamed of someday making California wines we could be proud of and passionate about. But we won’t do that. We also won’t tell you long stories about our organic vineyard sources, our abundance of judicious winemaking decisions in the cellar, or our love of varieties from the Rhone. 

Instead, we’ll tell you that we probably have a lot in common. We’re betting that you like good music, cooking in cast iron, a tattoo here and there, a great cup of coffee and a well balanced and thoughtfully crafted bottle. Or two. You’re probably the kind of person that cares more about how you got there rather than how long it took. 

We’re that Sunday morning, bathrobe dancing to Rufus and Wax Tailor kind of feeling. That chocolate chip cookie and orange juice vibe. You know how it feels the first time you jump into bed after you've just put fresh sheets on, crisp but cozy? Or when you sink into a deep warm bath? Our wines taste like that!

We’ll let the bottles speak for themselves. We love farming them, making them, and drinking them and we’re guessing you will too. If you want to know more check out our tech sheets, that’s where all the nerdy stuff lives. If you’d like to ask us a question, feel free to reach out. Until then.
