Our Story

Our story is not a new one, in fact you have probably heard a version of it a dozen times. It starts with some friends on vacation, ready to enjoy a week at a beautiful beach catching some sun and waves. Instead, when you get to that beach, all you see is miles of trash and plastic. We have all heard about how horrible single use plastics are for oceans, our beaches, our world, but it is not until you see it with your own two eyes that it REALLY hits home. It is like a punch in the gut. So, instead of catching those waves first thing in the morning, you and your friends drink a cup of coffee and then hit the beach to walk up and down picking up everything you can. We think we are doing our part to help out, but what else can we do besides finding alternatives to the plastic we use and buy every day? This was the topic of our conversations many nights that week. Then it hit us. A wine label that kicks back 100% of its profits to help with the cleanup. It is not much, but as people in the wine industry, it is what we can do from home to help. So pop the cork, enjoy some good wine, and help us RID the world of the trash that is destroying it.

Current Release

2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet

In 2018, a wet winter led into a dry and evenly warm season, resulting in gradual ripening and a relaxed and controlled harvest. Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a transparent expression of the vintage, where the keyword is balance. The 2018 Vintage is rich and opulent, yet detailed, restrained in style, and terroir-driven, due to its fully ripe, but not overripe, style.


Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)


Alexander Valley


28 months French oak (25% new)




48 cases


An intoxicating nose of red and black cherries, kirsch, dusky plums, blackberry, and sweet French oak introduce expressive flavors of cassis, dark berries, graphite, and vanilla, balanced by refreshing acidity, all enveloped by firm yet supple tannins and an impressively lingering finish. This vintage of Alexander Valley Cabernet displays impeccable balance, with not a single feature out of harmony or balance.
