The first email I ever sent for this wine shop featured a library release from a small, “culty” winery in Sierra Foothills of California called Clos Saron. Now, four years later, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m leaving this incredible wine shop to work at that very winery for the 2021 harvest. These wines move me in a way that very few do, and while they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, I truly believe that they should be experienced by those of you interested in natural expressions of California terroir. They are immensely powerful, concentrated, and brimming with a rustic charm. If I ever manage to make my own wines, I'll be seeking this style – expressive, unique, psychedelic — which is exactly why I'm so excited to move to North Yuba County this summer.
Alongside a few select bottles from Clos Saron, we’re offering wines from La Onda and Frenchtown Farms, two wineries that were started in his cellar by people who worked for him. As is sometimes the case, the quantities are necessarily limited given the total production of these producers, and while we were excited to secure multiple cases of most of these, once they go, they're gone. I hope you'll grab a bottle or two, as they come at my highest recommendation, and should not be missed.
