What are Wine Futures?
Buying Futures refers to purchasing wine that is still maturing in barrel. Each year, we invite our Standing Order members and past Futures buyers to come out and be the first to taste the newest vintage, straight out of barrel. The benefit when buying futures is that you reserve the wines at current release prices and you get your favorites without risking a sellout of these limited-production wines upon release.
Barrel tasting of the futures wine are available only from the winery for a limited time each year. Beginning with our Barrel Tasting Event the first Saturday after Presidents’ Day and continuing through about then end of July. Barrel tasting allow tasters to sample the wine in its early stages of the aging process.
However, sometimes when buying wines on a futures bases you don’t always have the opportunity to sample them directly from the barrel. To this end, we strive to make our wines with a very similar profile from year to year so that if you enjoy one vintage, chances are that you will enjoy it year after year. We always take every step necessary to make the very best wine we possibly can in a given year.
