We’re thrilled to present your Fall club selections, including the exciting new release of our Growers Series wines. These wines represent our family’s first foray into working with our neighbors and friends to bring unique varietals from special sites and vineyards. We can’t wait for you to try these two new Pinot Noirs from some of the most lauded regions for this varietal. As with all of our 2021 red wines, these are packaged in lighter-weight glass bottles to further our efforts in sustainability; let us know what you think!
This month, we are incredibly proud to officially release our Honouren Cabernet Sauvignon, a special commemorative wine showcasing photos of those living with, or lost to, Alzheimer’s. Through the Honouren Cabernet, we hope to bring our community together and raise vital funds for the fight against this disease. We are proud to donate 50% of each bottle sold to organizations dedicated to ending Alzheimer’s. Click here to learn more.
As we begin to celebrate the holidays with those near and dear to us, we want to thank you for another wonderful year of your continued support. We hope you enjoy these wines and toast to family as you share them with your loved ones.

This plant features delicate, flat leaves with a subtle garlic flavor. In its second year of growth, it produces attractive white flowers that can be used to enhance bouquets. These blossoms are also sold as ‘gow choy’ in Chinese grocery stores.
The flower florets can be separated and added to various dishes, including salads, dips, sauces, soups, stir-fries, and pizza. They make a delightful addition to potato salad, providing a mild garlic flavor.
In spring, sow seeds 1/4″ deep as soon as the soil warms in a sunny area with partial shade. Plant 4-6 seeds every 6″ or 1-2 seeds per inch. Subsequently, thin the plants to maintain 2-3 plants every 2-8″. Be diligent about keeping the area free of weeds.
Once the plants are well-established, individual leaves can be harvested. It’s best to collect the leaves before the plant starts flowering, and this can be done 3-4 times per year by cutting them at ground level.”

A tribute to the fight against Alzheimer’s
Our Dad and founder, Bob MacDonnell, believed in hard work, kindness, and caring for your people. Although he lost his battle with Alzheimer’s, we aim to honor his legacy and the 50 million people worldwide affected by Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
Our latest effort was the creation of Honouren, a special commemorative wine showcasing photos of those living with, or lost to, Alzheimer’s as our way of bringing together the community and raising vital funds for the fight. We are proud to donate 50% of the proceeds of each bottle sold to causes dedicated to ending Alzheimer’s.
Honouren is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from one of the finest blocks on our Rutherford Estate, showcasing photos submitted by our community of those living with or lost to Alzheimer’s. We’re grateful to work with award-winning winemakers Thomas Rivers Brown & Jeff Plant to create this classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is bold and rich, full of deep, dark flavors and phenomenal structure.
