Down to Earth Month

April is Down to Earth Month and an ideal time to check out California wines made with sustainable practices.

Following California Governor Newsom’s directive to suspend winery tasting room activities and events due to COVID-19, many of California’s sustainably-focused wineries are offering special discounts on wine and shipping fees. You can help support wineries during this challenging time by ordering wines online to enjoy at home. Check out our Events & Offers list below for details.

So this April, open a bottle of your favorite California wine and toast our commitment to green from grapes to glass.
