Cheers is a blog by us composed of behind-the-scenes shots of harvest, bottling, release parties, and all things Speckle Rock. Want to show us how you cheers?

We are pleased to say we are still open during our new summer hours from Thursday to Sunday from 1-7 PM! We are continuing to follow safe social distancing practices and are looking forward to welcoming you back to the vineyard as it is such a wonderful time of year here. We have started to harvest some of our grapes like our Pinot Meunier used in our sparkling collection and are seeing some grapes change color like our Grenache used in our rosé, Tälynlu red blend, and LYNAGE fortified wine. We will also feature our Grenache as a single varietal wine in our DG Cellars estate reserve collection available to club members on August 15th. As always, we hope you and your families are well, and we hope to welcome you back to the vineyard soon. Cheers!

Our fortified wine, LYNAGE, has been nominated in this year's Wine Business Monthly Wine Packaging Conference Awards!
"We wanted the packaging to be a reflection of the wine itself, which embodies a sense of occasion and modern elegance. We took classic elements like wax and used them in an alternative way. All packaging was done by hand, reflecting the hand-craftedness of the wine itself. The VinoSeal allows for elegant storage to enjoy for many future occasions."
Comments from the judges:
"Sexy package! It's very Euro-style and forces you to turn the bottle around."
"I'd want to try this and keep the bottle for storing other things. It's super clean and modern, a showpiece on the bar."
LYNAGE is currently sold out. We are working on crafting a new lot for your enjoyment!
