Looking Ahead

Happy 2021! We wish everyone health, hope, and prosperity for the New Year ahead. While the start of this year may still look like the end of the last one, we are embracing the anticipation of brighter days ahead.

The stay at home order in Sonoma County has been extended indefinitely, so our tasting room is currently closed for tastings. We are open for wine purchases and order pickups from noon to 4:30pm daily, so stop on by, or give us a call at 707.823.3887 and we'd be happy to bring your wine out to you in the parking lot. If you're a local Sonoma County resident, we can also bring your wine to your door. Just choose Order Pickup and then add a note in the Order Comments that you'd like us to drop it by to you.

New Virtual Tastings for the New Year

Since we're not able to taste with you in person right now, we have added a new line-up of Virtual Tastings so you can still get a little of the DG tasting experience. There's no charge to attend our virtual tastings, plus we're offering 75% off ground shipping—that's just $6 to CA, $7.50 for other Continental US states. Just purchase the package so you can taste along (or, if you already have the wine in your cellar, pop those bottles), click the link to sign up for the Virtual Tasting, and Greg will coordinate with you to set up a date and time.

Here are the new tastings we've put together for 2021.

We're always happy to customize a tasting with wines you'd like to sip and hear about, either from our current offerings or what's in your cellar (Greg loves an excuse to raid our library!). Send us an email or give us a call at 707.823.3887 to set something up. 

Looking for something ready to drink now? 
Yes, we have Library wines available

We were talking with our club member Jon this week, who wanted to know if we still had some library wines available that are ready to drink now, while he holds the current releases. So, in addition to counting what inventory we have remaining of the 2012s we released recently, we also dug through our cellar and came up with a few more offerings to add to the mix that are great wines for enjoying now. For a limited time, we're throwing in shipping included on case purchases (mix and match okay):

2011 Shop Block Pinot Blanc $37
2011 Green Valley Vineyard Gewürztraminer $37
2011 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay $47
2012 Rued Vineyard Chardonnay $68
2012 Walker Hill Vineyard Chardonnay $68
2012 Angel Camp Vineyard Pinot Noir $80
2012 Azaya Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir $80
2012 Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir $50

We also have some limited amounts of other library wines, so if there's something in particular you're looking for and don't see, just ask.

Here's to '21!
