Weekend Plans This Winter? Ernest's New Tasting Room Line Up.

Weekend Plans This Winter? Ernest's New Tasting Room Line Up.

Our 2018 marked the opening of our tasting room at Grand Cru Custom Crush, home to our winery. And we were lucky to have hosted many of you throughout the year! We rang in the new year by putting our heads together to answer: How could we step up our game — and elevate our tasting experience? 

Looping back to that special piece of news.

Fret not. We kept the good stuff. 

Same intimate space. Same educational winery tour. And same hospitality crew — Erin, Todd, Nicole, Tobi, and myself are all still here. 🙂 

What’s changed? 

More wine? Sure thing. Different wines. Yep. Special stuff we share exclusively in our tasting room? Bingo!

Why bother? What’s in it for you? Great questions. 

Here’s why this matters:

-We care about giving you access to the full breadth of our sites and the wines they produce.

- We’ve been holding back vintages and special wines — and it’s time to share.

- Sonoma County has WAY more to offer than Chard and Pinot (we know because we make some) and we want you to venture into these unique varietals with us.

All four of our new wine tastings are hand-selected collections, expressive of their site-specificity. Here’s a peak so you get a sense of what I’m talking about:
