Cooper Mountain Vineyards started in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Today, the estate has more than 100 acres dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking. This Pinot Noir is refreshing and ripe, with brambly raspberry and cherry fruit, baking spice, and earthy flavors. Serve with a chill. Jonas Mendoza
Enjoy an excellent discount on this year's July 4th six-pack, which features delicious, sparkling local cider from our friends at Treasury Cider (Fishkill Farms), fresh and exotic Vermentino from the ingenious Chad Stock of Minimus, a pair of energizing rosés from a new California favorite (Rootdown) and a longtime California favorite (Ampelos), Cooper Hill's certified Biodynamic, light and lovely Pinot Noir, and the perfect, BBQ-ready Evangelho Vineyard Zinfandel from Precedent. Wines that sell out will be replaced by selections of comparable value and quality.
Treasury Cider is made by our friends at Fishkill Farms, familiar to many of our local customers from their exceptional organic produce stands at the New York Greenmarkets. From Fishkill's 80 acres of apple orchards (half are certified organic; the other half are Eco-certified), apple varieties are specifically selected for this bottle conditioned cider (Esopus Spitzenberg, Roxbury Russet, Ashmead’s Kernel, Northern Spy, Cox’s Orange Pippin, and Jonamac). It ferments to dryness in tank then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, creating an elegant froth and fizz that flatters the dry palate of tangy green apple, citrus blossom, and pear, with savory, yeasty notes.

Dry-farmed Vermentino grafted onto own-rooted Cabernet vines planted on red volcanic soils at 1600 feet in Applegate Valley? Chad Stock of Minimus keep us on our toes... His Vermentino is subtle, fresh and textured, medium-bodied, combining silky citrus, white peach, and pear, with fresh green herbs and Mediterranean notes of herbal garrigue, green almond, and brine. Perfect with grilled oysters and fish, chicken burgers, salads, and cheese. Layne Vineyard is LIVE Certified, which allows for non-organic treatments, though (as Stock explains), "It is so warm there just plain old sulfur is the primary spray of choice at this vineyard; the Vermentino is trained on a quadrilateral cordon which splits the canopy allowing for lots of sunlight on the fruit and maximum air flow to reduce spray needs. All vine work is done by hand, harvest is by hand." Keep the Minimus coming! Ariana Rolich
Rootdown is an exciting new label from Mike Lucia, who made wine at Copain Winery until the company was sold to Kendall Jackson last year. For Rootdown, he is making small quantities of organically-farmed Grenache Blanc, Trousseau, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, and more. The 2016 rosés are stunning, packed with personality, but light as can be. Mourvedre rosé from young vines in Amador County combines electric red berry fruit, hints of savory herbs, pink peppercorn, electric acidity, and low alcohol. Personally, I cannot stop reaching for this wine. Ariana Rolich
Peter and Rebecca Work of Ampelos consistently produce some of the most delicious Pinot, Syrah, Viognier, and Grenache in Santa Barbara County. Farming and sustainability are central at Ampelos - they have Demeter Biodynamic and SIP (Sustainability in Practice) certification, and even their bottles are produced in California. Their 2016 rose is fresh and flavorful, combining 80% Syrah, farmed and harvested specifically for rose, 15% Grenache, and a 5% splash of Riesling from recently-planted vines on their estate. Juicy watermelon and strawberry blossoms, with crunchy pomegranate, blood orange, and cool citrus zests. (Also available in magnum!) Ariana Rolich
Precedent's Evangelho bottling teaches even the Zin-averse to contemplate this fragrant, complex, and age-worthy grape anew. Aromas of creamy boysenberry and black cherry, with pink flowers, citrus, incense spice, and licorice; the palate exudes both perfect ripeness and fresh acidity, with juicy black and dark red fruits, licorice, bergamot, orange oils, sea brine, and a long minerally finish. Evangelho is a very special vineyard in Contra Costa county, composed of own-rooted Zinfandel with Carignan, Mourvedre, Palomino, Muscat, Chasselas, etc planted in 1890 on deep alluvial sands.
