Group Buys: Lodi Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot

Contact Henry at 916 997-3056 or

Cellar Master Henry Wilkinson is putting together 2 group buys for members only:  petite sirah and petit verdot.  Both varietals are sourced from Bokisch Vineyards in Lodi.  Grapes are 75 cents per lb.

The varietals can be made as stand-alone varietals or as blending wines.  Each varietal adds color and its own personality to other varietals.  Petit verdot is often used in red Bordeaux blends to enhance the mid-palate, and petite sirah can add needed structure to many reds.

As both varietals make excellent blenders and topping wine, Henry offers to lead a “Blending Varietal Focus Group’ after the wines have aged.
