It’s been a pretty busy month here in Sonoma, with several big changes at the20, plus four fantastic new wines.
Our goal at the20 is to offer amazing artisan wines in a more sustainable way. To that end, we’ve made two major changes over the last month.
First, we opened theCellar, our online wine store, to everyone. As far as we're concerned, everyone (especially you) should have access to great wines (especially ours). So go ahead and give theCellar a good look, we guarantee you'll find some gems.
Second, we've decided to offer our customers additional ways to enjoy our wines. To that end, we've designed a streamlined wine delivery system with a streamlined price. If you're interested in our new system, temporarily named "Lite," please check it out here.
In our April newsletter we introduced our Sessions wines, each of which is chosen by our panels at one of our tasting sessions (hence the name). As we mentioned, each of the Session wines is superbly crafted, but an incredible steal because they don’t carry the winery’s label. Over the last month we’ve introduced four Session wines, with two more to be introduced later this month.
Our April release from theClub was the 2008 Session 001 Beholden Petite Syrah. The head winemaker of a marquee CA winery crafted Beholden for his own personal stash. He called Beholden “the best wine I’ve ever made,” and with its big black fruits, tobacco and silky tannins, there are no arguments here.
We released three additional Session wines over the past month:
Next week we'll be releasing two more Session wines to help prepare you for warmer weather: a Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc.
