It may have been another early start to the growing season, but we couldn’t have asked for a more gentle and beautiful May . . . so let’s all toast to the hopes of an extraordinary year.
To help keep things fresh and exciting this summer we have two limited release offerings introducing unique wines from two of the most boundary pushing vineyards in California.
We will introduce our 2012 Enfield Wine Co. Fort Ross – Seaview Cabernet Sauvignon. Far out on the Sonoma Coast we encountered this tiny two acre vineyard up on a rocky ridge looking out over some of the most famous Pinot Noir vineyards in California. Quite possibly the coolest climate Cab vineyard in the state, this is not your standard issue California Cab so get ready for something special. Tasting notes and details coming soon.
We will be releasing a joint project we made with our friends over at Dirty & Rowdy Family Winery (http://www.dirtyandrowdy.com) . If you’re not familiar with D&R, they make some of the most fun and exciting wines on the market right now with a focus on “off the beaten path” grape varietals and low-tech naturally inspired winemaking. In 2014 we found that we were getting grapes from vineyard blocks right next to each other, planted on some of the most extraordinary limestone soils either of us had ever seen. So we decided to let the soil speak for itself and make a small, daring blend of the two wines. The result is a truly unique soil driven wine that is soulful, exciting, and even a little bit serious. More info to come . . .
As we slowly grow at Enfield Wine Co. and have more wine to share, we will aim to do more of these types of events that provide opportunities to venture out to awesome locations and get a chance to taste our wines even if you can’t make it up to visit us directly.

Ordinaire is a highly curated wine destination that has one of the best and most eclectic collections of California wine around. We will have a full line-up of 5 wines open to taste so put it on your calendars and stop by. Admission is $10.
