It’s the most wine-derful time of the year. The holiday season is finally upon us. Every holiday celebration deserves the perfect wine pairing to go along with it. Make spirits merry and bright no matter what gathering you're hosting or attending by bringing along our newly-released Red Set, featuring our 2021 Pinot Noir, 2019 Red Blend, and our limited-edition 2021 Petite Sirah.
