Looking for something wild? Comprised of eight less traditional wines, our Wild Child tasting flight is perfect for when you (and your palate) are feeling adventurous. You won’t taste convention in these free-spirited, by-the-glass bottles, each a hard-to-find, one-of-a-kind instant classic. Say goodbye to the ordinary, and follow us where the wild things are.
La Pluma - Vermentio
The thin-skinned, aromatic Vermentino grape hails from Sardinia, a Mediterranean island known for its postcard-perfect coastlines. Finding its home away from home among the rich soil and rolling hills of California's Lodi region, this zesty and crisp wine is as rejuvenating as a day at the beach.
Game Theory - Gewürztraminer
Gewürztraminer is a mouthful, but think of its many, many syllables as your first taste of sweet, tropical flavor. Richly golden, with hints of rose and ripe pineapple, this cool-climate grape is like your super-chill French pen pal who grew up in a literal castle. And once they move out to SoCal? They totally live up to the hype.
Stealing Thunder - Rosé of Sangiovese
The savory, berry-colored Sangiovese grape is tough to find in California, where it makes up only half a percent of red wine growth. Thankfully, we've tracked down and bottled this delicate, mouthwateringly acidic rosé, pale pink and ripe with the tropically tart taste of passion fruit. Like revenge and leftover pizza, it's best served cold.
Red Tide Wines - Barbera
The heat tolerant barbera grape is less wild in the Piedmont Region of Italy, where it's an every day drinking wine. It's found a home away from home in the warmest regions of California. This mood-agnostic barbera can be enjoyed from poolside to snowy cabin.
Mr B | Sangiovese
Slow to ripen and beautifully balanced, Sangiovese is so beloved in Italy that it's actually called "the blood of Jupiter" (or, for those more Greek mythology-inclined, Zeus). Pinot- and syrah-lovers will adore the combination of rich vanilla from an oak aging process with sweet, juicy black cherry. Each sip is velvety smooth and 100% worthy of the King of the Gods.
Game Theory - Tempranillo
Tempranillo vines are unique due to their jagged leaves which change colors in the fall, but we think the best thing about them is the flagrantly smoky grapes they grow. Native to the gorgeous green valleys of Rioja, Spain, and grown on California's Central Coast, this rustic, oak-aged wine is perfect for fans of cabernet sauvignon. Just be prepared to have a new favorite.
Fortune Favors - Mourvèdre
Also called Mataro or Monastrell, some scholars link Mourvèdre to the Phoenicians, meaning it is almost as old as our alphabet. But like Beyonce in the Destiny's Child days, this full-bodied, jammy wine shows up much more in blends, without a chance to shine on its own. Thankfully, our how-climate, Californian version is shaking things up, bottling them for a meaty, spicy flavor that's sure to steal the show.
Balance of Powers - Souzao
The most delicious grape you’ve never heard of. Originally from Portugal where it’s used in the production of port and table wines, souzao is known for its intense flavor, color and full body.
