🍷 MEET OUR NEWEST WINES 🍷
NEW! 2020 Falanghina
Our unique varietal from the southern Italian coast boasts beautiful citrus blossom aromas followed by apple, pineapple, and lime flavors on the palate. This wine is delightfully light-bodied with crisp acidity. Pair it with light cheeses, salads, seafood, chicken, and spicy food (Tip: Try it with Thai). Best served chilled.
NEW! 2020 Rosé
This lovely Southern California-style rosé expresses tangy notes of peach, strawberry, orange blossoms, and refreshing minerality. This rosé of grenache is perfect for picnics, pool parties, and BBQs. Pair it with your favorite appetizers and light dishes. Best served chilled.
NEW! 2018 Tälynlu
Grenache Leading Red Blend, 53% Grenache, 35% Merlot, 12% Sangiovese
Our Grenache-leading proprietary red blend expresses decadent notes of leather, plum, black currant, and oak. This wine is full-bodied with a dry, lingering finish and pairs well with grilled meats and Mediterranean cuisine.
NEW! 2018 DG Cellars Estate Reserve Merlot
After being featured in many blends, we are pleased (and very proud) to introduce our first ever single varietal Merlot. This wine has been aged for 24 months in French oak and expresses notes of dry oak, caramel, dark cherry, vanilla, anise, and forest floor. Pair it with prosciutto, sharp cheese, pulled pork BBQ, and portobello mushroom burgers.
