*2 bottle limit per-person

Jonathan: This is ostensibly cider, but the addition of grape skins adds just enough of a vinous quality to make this read almost like a crushable rose. Fresh, floral aromas. Fruity with balanced acidity. Notes of rosewater, peach, blood orange, creamsicle, and a little salinity. This is going to be what you want by your side when the temperature starts to climb. Zero sulfur but super-clean.

Kirk: Named after my favorite Kate Bush song, and in reference to the insane rainstorm that happened while I picked the apples that went into this "sparkling fruit wine" (there are also a few pears). I was given the chance to work with these beautiful heirloom apples after Laura Brennan (of Inconnu) introduced me to the lovely owner of Zephyr Farms just down the hill from her pristine Underwood Mountain vineyard. Myself, along with my dear friend Kate Norris (of Division Winemaking Co. & Gamine) took a caravan out to the orchard and handpicked about a half ton of apples and a ton of pears — keep an eye out for Kate's pear cider, made from her share that same day. We brought the apples back to Portland where I shredded them by hand (something I will probably never do again as it took an entire day to do it and my arms have never been as sore) adding in Gamay, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The mixture macerated for 48 hours before being pressed over Chenin Blanc and transferred to one old barrel. The juice fermented for about 3 weeks, when we then added a few gallons of Nebbiolo rose. It was then bottled under crown cap at about .5 brix to finish fermentation in the bottle. Nothing added. Label art by Regina "Push" Estrada Only 24 cases produced.

Some of our wine is sold "Pre-Arrival." All "Pre-Arrival" items will be indicated as such on our website and include the estimated date of arrival. We will contact you once the wine has arrived and confirm any shipment or delivery requests prior to sending.

From time to time we purchase private collections and offer these wines to you at competitive and, we think, very attractive pricing.  We only purchase cellars of top provenance bottles that have been stored in ideal conditions, and we only work with trusted acquaintances and collectors.  If the wine you are considering does not display certain information, or if you would like certain images of the bottles please reach out using the form below.
