EK Vineyard Story
SHOWCASING SONOMA COUNTY
A simple statement and profound truth: great wine is grown in the vineyard. To make it you must start with outstanding fruit.
Sonoma County comprises one of the most diverse and impressive viticultural areas in the world. Our vineyards are chosen to highlight this diversity, from coastal to inland, high elevation to low, rocky soil to sandy, cool-climate to warm, so that we can showcase this fascinating variety in our vineyard designates, appellation wines and proprietary blends.
But how often do you hear about the farmers who coax this amazing bounty out of their land year after year? All too often these dedicated vineyard owners and managers remain the unsung heroes of fine wine. It is with deep respect and appreciation that we introduce you to these hard-working men and women without whom none of us would ever raise a glass to our lips and exclaim over such heavenly products of the grape.
As we happily sip our favorite wines and let our minds wander to thoughts of rolling hillsides and manicured vineyards, let us always remember… there are tireless farmers to thank for it all.
SHIPMENTS TWICE A YEAR
Direct sales are allocated exclusively to EK Allocation List members at a 10% discount. Orders of 6+ bottles save an additional 50% off shipping. New releases ship twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall.
You may customize your spring and fall allocations any way you like, from 0–12 bottles of each wine. (Small-lot and list-only wines will have lower limits.) To modify your allocations, click on MY ALLOCATION above.
Wines often sell out at or close to release, so we encourage making the most of your spring and fall allocations. As long as wine remains, you are welcome to reorder online through our EK Special Order store. Or contact John Gillis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.244.9453.
