The Wines!!
Steorra Brut NV Sparkling $22.99
A lover of champagne, Joe Wagner has long wanted to create a classic sparkling wine using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit.
It’s Steorra, his first-ever sparkling wine, takes its name from the Old English word for ‘star’ and is a non-vintage Brut style sparkling sourced from Sonoma County’s cool-climate Russian River Valley esteemed for these grape varieties. Steorra is made in an elegant soft style with a fine bead and universally appealing flavors of lemon sherbet, luscious cream, subtle toastiness and a fresh finish.

Mer Soleil Silver, Unoaked Chardonnay $20.99
Fair in color and fresh from start to finish, the Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay opens up with aromas of flower blossoms, crisp pears and a hint of honeysuckle.
Bright citrus evokes the clean taste of Meyer lemons, which grow amidst our estate vineyards, where a portion of this wine is sourced.

Mer Soleil Reserve Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands $29.99
Soft gold color. Richly perfumed nose, with light notes of honeysuckle, truffle and buttery oak.
Full, layered flavors of tropical fruit are balanced by a bright acidity of sweet citrus, and linger though the long, creamy finish.

Boen Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley $26.99
"Intense aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, coconut, black licorice and a hint of toast, along with smoked meat, blueberry and barrel spice.
The palate is lush with a raisin and dried strawberry character layered with cola, vanilla cream soda and black licorice.
Powerful structure balanced with bright acidity and fine, persistent tannins for a wine with complexity, opulence and a long, satisfying finish." J

Quilt Fabric of the Land, Red Blend $34.99
For our Napa Valley Quilt Fabric of the Land Red Wine, we work with grapes representing the diversity of varietals cultivated in the Napa Valley AVA.
We source Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot grapes from a spectrum of Napa Valley proper; from Oak Knoll in the South to Calistoga in the North.

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon $49.99
"A seamless blend of cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves and charry meat with notes of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin.
Rich and satisfying with chocolate brownie, yogurt and molasses in perfect balance with high-toned fruit."

The Beers!!
Einstok Icelandic White Ale, 6 pack $11.99
Einstok Icelandic Pale Ale, 6 pack $11.99

In Iceland, our quest was simple: We wanted to make the best white ale we ever tasted.
We got there with the complex flavors of the classic witbier, including orange peel and coriander – 
all brewed with pure Icelandic water and a touch of oats that deliver a cool smoothness that is uniquely flavorful and refreshingly drinkable.
Einstök Ölgerð ® is located just 60 miles south of the Arctic circle in the fishing port of Akureyri, Iceland. 
There, the water flows from rain and prehistoric glaciers down the Hlíðarfjall Mountain and through ancient lava fields,
delivering the purest water on Earth, and the perfect foundation for brewing deliciously refreshing craft ales.

Collective Arts Blueberry Sour with Cocoa, 4 pack $17.99
Rich, chocolatey flavours typically belong to porters and stouts. We're throwing you a curveball; a rich, chocolatey...sour.
It may sound strange - until you try it.
Our winter seasonal sour features sweet blueberries and decadent cocoa, balanced with just the right amount of tart acidity.
