Futo & Dakota Shy WineriesFUTO: Since 2002, Tom Futo has produced complex wines, with Cabernet Sauvignon being the predominant varietal. Typically available only to those on the mailing list, access to Futo wine is a rare treat.

DAKOTA SHY: Started in 2003 by Todd Newman, Dakota Shy found its way onto Wine Spectator’s Top 100 in only its second vintage!


Theorem & Booker WineriesTHEOREM: Once an overgrown, forgotten property on Diamond Mountain, Theorem Estate Vineyard has quickly become one of the top wines of the AVA, produced under the direction of superstar consultant Thomas Rivers Brown.

BOOKER: Eric Jensen and team believe in minimalism at Booker Wines and a holistic approach to farming, which in turn allows the vines to give beautiful, concentrated, and highly textured wines.



Bien Nacido & Handwritten Wineries

BIEN NACIDO: Often considered the grand cru Pinot Noir vineyard of California, Bien Nacido is producing arguably the most compelling Pinot, as well as Chardonnay and Syrah, anywhere in the United States.

HANDWRITTEN: Celebrated for creating Old World varieties in a New World setting, winemaker Rob Lloyd focuses on small production wines sourced from quality vineyards around the valley.

DOMAINE CLOS DE LA CHAPPELLE: One of only four American landowners in Burgundy, Kansas City’s own Mark O’Connell has transformed this Monopole property into one of Volnay’s top estates.



Staglin Brewer

STAGLIN: Founded in 1985, the Staglin family organically produces world-class varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sangiovese.

BREWER-CLIFTON: Winemaker Greg Brewer, specializing in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, was instrumental in the creation of the Sta Rita Hills AVA, making the Santa Barbara wine region what it has become today.
