United as an unlikely pair of talented winemakers, Jeff Davis and Greg Brickey created Majuscule – a boutique winery known for producing elegant Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from exceptional vineyards in the Napa Valley, with a focus on the Mount Veeder Appellation.WINEMAKER NOTES: Every Spring we release a "summer red blend" that's mostly Cab Franc and intended to be enjoyed slightly chilled as the weather warms up. Our delightful summer red blend truly expresses the elegance and texture of the predominant Cabernet Franc with the backbone of high-elevation Cabernet Sauvignon and the roundness of mountain-grown Merlot. All the fruit was sourced from the Wildcat and Saffron Vineyards on Napa's Mount Veeder.
Bruce & Barbara were college sweethearts at the university of Delaware. Bruce’s brief stint in the Army brought them to San Francisco in 1970 where they soon became a part of the exciting Bay Area food & wine scene. They moved up to Napa Valley and ultimately purchased the Conn Valley Ranch in 1984 and in 1992 Neyers Vineyards was born.A Commitment To Excellence. Influenced by French wine producers. Neyers wines, though grown in California, are greatly influenced by old world philosophies and techniques. Neyers Vineyards sits in the heart of the Napa Valley but Bruce’s experience with Berkeley based French wine importer Kermit Lynch has had an undeniable influence on our wines. Many of the French producers Bruce worked with farm organically, make their wines naturally without use of cultured yeast or laboratory designed malo-lactic starter, and bottle their wines without fining or filtration. We like the results and utilize many of their ideas.
The production of outstanding wine is invariably accompanied by some degree of risk, and with the help of many of our French colleagues, we’ve learned how to minimize that risk, and make it work to our advantage.WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2020 Chardonnay from Carneros came from a warm, early vintage. Yields averaged about three tons per acre, and the wine is characterized by its combination of fresh, natural acidity, low alcohol, and a bright, complex finish. It’s difficult to imagine any food that won’t be improved by a glass of it, but the winemaker finds it especially enjoyable with whole roasted, lemon-stuffed chicken. TASTING NOTES: The aromas are immediately attractive with a lemon/lime zest quality and the flavors beckon you in with their softness and intrigue. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity, spiced apple flavors, and a subtle toasty component. VARIETALS: Chardonnay APPELLATION: Carneros District, California, USA
Quality is important. Taste is everything. And the professionalism and know-how that comes from a prestigious yet modern vineyard is absolute key.
Baglietti is about one thing and one thing only. Baglietti is about the feeling in your gut, the sound in your ears, the sensation of a cold glass on your dry lips. The tray with glasses. The feeling when everything stops for a second. Regardless of setting, city or occasion. The magic moment when you open the bottle. The invisible yet clear line between ordinary and extraordinary. The promise of something else.
Let’s live in the moment. If just for a moment. What you see is what you get.
To Now!Marco Baglietti worked in the hills surrounding Veneto for 45 years. In many ways he embodied the proffessional know-how we strive for at Baglietti. Our name is a tribute to Marco's legacy. WINEMAKER NOTES: Baglietti No.7 is completely organic from start to finish. We only use grapes from the Piave area, which is Baglietti’s most qualitative area in Prosecco. The perfect serving temperature is 6-8°C. TASTING NOTES: Baglietti Rosé Extra Dry No.7 is an ecological spumante rosé with a rich scent from white peach, citrus and summer berries. The taste is elegant and dry with elements of raspberry, citrus and almond. A well-balanced acid combined with a dry finish gives the wine wonderful fullness. VARIETALS: Glera, Pinot Noir APPELLATION: Prosecco DOC, Veneto, Italy
