Join us April 8th at Bay Grape in Oakland for a release party of our new label Uphold Wines. Ryan and Megan will be pouring from 4-7pm!
We are thrilled to be part of the 7% Solution event. This exciting tasting celebrates diversity in the grape varieties planted in California with some of the area’s most exciting producers. Join us in San Francisco on May 13th or Healdsburg on May 14th.
New York folks! Come out and visit us on March 30th at Astor Wine and Spirits. We will be pouring alongside a great group of California Winemakers from 6-8pm. We hope to see you there!
On February 4th our very first Crackling Carignane will be released, along with the 2015 Hers Vermentino.
In harvest of 2013 the press rained magenta. It was beautiful. The juice was a 24 hour cold soak Carignane from old vines in Mendocino. It was destined for our first Crackling. What is this, you ask? Crackling is the U.S. term for Petillant or lightly sparkling. You may have heard of Petillant Naturel or “PetNat”, but what’s better than the good old-fashioned American Crackling! The wine is playful and delicious. So playful and delicious in fact that this is available only in magnum. Designed to be consumed with friends or loved ones, while eating a pizza or playing your favorite board game. The lyrics of Neil Diamond’s Cracklin’ Rosie comes to mind:
Oh I love you my Rosie child –
You got the way to make me happy.
You and me, we go in style…
Cracklin’ Rose your a store bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’…
Accompanying the Crackling Carignane this release is the 2015 ‘Hers’ Vermentino. I feel like I get more and more excited about this wine with each release. It’s salty and aromatic, refreshing and mouthwatering. It seems to scream for sunshine and call to springtime. I hope it makes you as happy as it does me.
We are looking forward to our winemaker server night at Scopa in Healdsburg. Come and join Megan from 5:30-10pm! We’ll have a sneak peak of our upcoming Fall Release. We hope to see you there!

We are thrilled to launch our new website and shopping cart! The 21st Century has arrived and hopefully we have streamlined the ordering process! The new website includes information on all of our current and past vintages of wine to date. We want to express our deep appreciation to everyone who worked through our former analog system to order wine over the past year.
Reading through the new site you will find that we are launching a new brand called Verse. This sister label will be a compliment to the more esoteric Ryme portfolio of wines. Verse will release this summer a Pinot Noir and Charonnay from two Sonoma County vineyards that we are very excited about. More to come soon.
