SEVEN PERCENT CALIFORNIA CLUB

Tasting Notes

Seven Percent is the movement celebrating and perpetuating varietal diversity in California. The lineup of winemakers we work with are top of their class, making some of the most interesting and sought-after wines in the US. These are the winemakers and growers who are working with grapes very familiar in the Old World but new to California, perpetuating varietal diversity, and redefining California wine. We are very lucky to live amongst and represent so many rebels.

WITH GRAPE CURIOSITY COMES GRAPE RESPONSIBILITY

Six years ago Matthew Rorick began an epic re-grafting project at his estate vineyard in Calaveras County. Today he is working with approximately 50 different grape varieties on his 75 acre property. These are three wines from his new-to-California grapes.

DECEMBER CLUB :  BUBBLES FOR THE PEOPLE

California Seven Percenters collectively produce some of our favorite bubbles on Earth. Driven by soil, low alcohol and complexity, this month will, at the very least, help you ring in the New Year in serious style.

AN INTRODUCTION TO VARIETAL DIVERSITY

California: the new frontier for grape growers, winemakers and folks like us who just love to drink good juice. We bring you three grape varieties that, although rare here in California, are certainly not completely unheard of in our soils. They each have great histories in France and Spain, and their story is still young and chock full of adventure and potential.
