Awesome Values On Beer, Wine & Mead From California

Home > Trends > Awesome Values On Beer, Wine & Mead From California
This month we’re featuring a selection of our favorite producers from the golden state. Thanks to drought, freight and fires, prices continue to rise on California products, but we have a few producers who continue to offer awesome values. Take advantage of some special pricing from these boutique wineries, craft breweries and even an award winning meadery.

Sojourn Cellars

Beginning as a passion project for tennis partners Craig Haserot and Erich Bradley, Sojourn Cellars has evolved into an acclaimed boutique winery that crafts high-quality, artisan Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Their wines are terroir-driven, and selected from some of the finest vineyard locations in Sonoma County and Napa County. With so many vineyard-specific wines to choose from, Sojourn Cellars provides a fun way for your customers to experience all of the dynamic terroirs California has to offer.

Grayson Cellars

Grayson Cellars takes great pride in producing California wines that boast outstanding quality for their price point. Noticing the disappearance of every-day pricing in California wines, Grayson Cellars has made it a priority to maintain their handcrafted California wines at a by-the-glass price. Winemaker Larry Levin creates wines that are driven by their varietal character with the signature complexity and richness of Californian wines. These wines are crowd pleasers – and the Chardonnay is even served at the White House!

Block & Tackle by Rootstock Cellars

A long time collaboration between our founder Tim and his daughter Laura, Rootstock Cellars partners with producers from around the world to create custom wines at an outstanding value. This month we’re featuring Block & Tackle Proprietors Reserve, a Napa Valley Merlot bursting with black fruits and tannins. This is made only in exceptional vintages from premier vineyard locations to exude luxury in a glass, without the high price point.

Lost Coast Brewery

Located on the northern coast of California, Lost Coast Brewery is known for their dynamic craft beers. They first launched their brand with their Great White wheat beer and haven’t looked back since. With both year-round and seasonal beers, there is always something exciting to add to your beer list. This summer, we recommend their Great White, Sharkinator White IPA and Tangerine Wheat: perfect for the warmest months of the year.

Chaucer’s Cellars

Chaucer’s Cellars has been handcrafting award-winning meads for over 50 years. They utilize orange blossom, sage, wildflower, and alfalfa honeys from local California beekeepers. Without the addition of artificial flavorings, concentrates or colorings, Chaucer’s meads are fruity, sweet, and refreshing. Along with their traditional mead, they offer a pomegranate and raspberry. Are you new to mead, or want to give it a try? Please do – these versatile beverages are fabulous with spicy foods, from Ethiopian cuisine to spicy pork buns, and can be a key ingredient in various cocktail recipes.
