Named Amongst the Top 3 by Snooth

Our Syrah Tous le Jours was named by Snooth as amongst the top 3 value Syrah bottlings…I am SO proud of our Tous les Jours. And to think that this is not bulk plonk, but rather carefully grown and artfully blended Syrah from about 6 different vineyards, all within a 5 mile radius of my new front door, read more here.

“Santa Barbara: The Thrill of Discovery” by Antonio Galloni

“I tasted few wines from Andrew Murray this year than last, which is partly a reflection of Murray’s move to focus his range. At their best, these wines – the Syrahs in particular – deliver compelling quality and value, a balance that is frankly commendable in today’s market.”

– “Santa Barbara: The Thrill of Discovery” by Antonio Galloni, July 2014

Featured: Drink with pride – for $20 or less per bottle

So very humbled and happy to see Jon Bonne at the SF Chronicle appreciating our Syrah Tous les Jours. We love that he thinks it drinks like a more expensive and serious wine. We describe it as European elegance blended with California sunshine. We hope that you pick up a bottle or three to try! Check out the article here… http://bit.ly/1pAgf2B

Friday, April 11th – SB Vintners Festival Barrel Toasting Seminar and Tasting

Learn how wine barrels are built and watch as they are toasted inside with fire by the cooper artisans from Tonnellerie Ô . Taste wines from different barrels and toasts to experience the effect these have on wine. Enjoy an authentic wine country cookout, bonfires and music under the stars at the Buellton Bodegas in the Santa Ynez Valley. Winemakers will be on hand with plenty of opportunity to discuss their wines and offer barrel tastings. Enjoy meeting the folks from Carivintas Winery, Casa Dumetz Wines, Larner Vineyards, Municipal Winemakers, Andrew Murray Wines and Coquelicot Wines.

Tonnellerie Ô was conceived of and built with a noble vision: to handcraft exquisite French oak barrels essential for making the world’s finest wines. While their oak is French, Tonnellerie Ô is distinctly American. They’ve chosen to build their barrels right here in California, amongst so many of the world’s finest wineries. All their barrels are hand crafted, hand toasted and hand finished by accomplished artisans skilled in the age-old craft of coopering. Using their keenly trained sense of sight, smell and touch, the veteran coopers transform oak selectively sourced from the finest French forests and stave mills into exceptional barrels destined for the finest wines. Please join us for this unique experience!
