Machine picked perfection at the perfect time. Machine picking uses laser guided and optical technology to make sure that bad grapes are rejected and that only the best grapes are picked off the vines. The grapes are then sent through a blower to ensure a fair amount of extraneous materials are removed. We then take these grapes for processing and freezing the same day.

This vineyard is located in Livermore, California in the Livermore Valley. The historic Livermore Valley is one of California’s most prestigious wine grape growing regions. The combination of elevation, temperatures, soil drainage is extremely ideal for vineyards to flourish and produce high-quality grapes.

This particular vineyard located outside within 5 miles of Ruby Hill and across from a water preserve experiences a slightly cooler effect at night which promotes a later harvest and longer hang time on the vine. This, in turn, allows for increased absorption of nutrients and the flavors, in turn, are phenomenal. The climate of this growing region has been compared to Calistoga and St. Helena in the Northern Napa Valley.

Each bucket contains grape must and may contain up to 4% MOG material. MOG is a material other than grapes such as stems, sticks, leaves. MOG is NORMAL and should be removed prior to fermentation.

We typically ship within 1-2 business days, however, if you are located on the East Coast and place an order on Wednesday-Friday we may not ship until the following Monday. This is because we don’t want the pails to sit in a shipping warehouse of unknown temperature over the weekend. The shipping carriers usually give an estimate and we don’t want it to take more than 5 days transit time to reach you. West Coast orders will also typically ship out within 1 business day.

Each 6-gallon container has 50 pounds of must and makes approximately 3.75 – 4 gallons of wine.

    Adding to my other review: I couldn’t wait to purchase again from these guys. Bought their 2019 Cab buckets and the wine turned out better than I could have imagined. I placed an order for their 2020 grapes over summer and patiently waited for it to ship. Grapes arrived this week and O.M.G, they were just incredible.

    I also purchased a Merlot bucket and it was better than last year. I had some extra sticks last year, but this year the grapes are 10x better quality.
