Summer 2015 Wine Club Shipment
The Incredible Shrinking Wine Inventory
Owning a vineyard and winery means that we get to wear many different hats in our jobs/daily lives- we could list many; but let's face it, it really is all about the wine. Preparing for a wine club shipment is a lengthy process that takes us the better part of two weeks before the wine even gets to you. Part of the excitement in preparing a wine club shipment is deciding which wines we will be shipping. Whether it's an unreleased vintage or a special project created with just our club members in mind, we love getting to choose what we share with you. In choosing the wines, we typically try to aim for a theme - some past ones include oak usage, award winners, and blends vs. varietals. This shipment however, we are without a theme; the reason that we chose these wines was ensure that you get to enjoy a bottle before they are sold out!
If you've been a CWC fan for the past few years, you may have noticed that our Chardonnay and Petit Verdot don't last long. In fact, our 2012 Petit Verdot only made it for four months last year- barely long enough for us to announce the release before it was gone; and the last few vintages of Chardonnay have been sold out in under a year. In the interest of being sure that our biggest fans "get it before it's gone", this shipment includes the 2014 Chardonnay and the to-be released this weekend 2013 Petit Verdot. The final wine selection is a special project of which just 83 cases were created- the 2014 Eight & Sand, a Late Harvest Cabernet Franc, that is a little sweet and a lot interesting- it's definitely unlike anything we've had before! We'd love to know what you think about it!
