Mon Frère

The Mon Frère Winery originated from a collaboration between one of the most legendary winemakers in America, Tom Hinde and perhaps one of the most important wine-related families after the prohibition in twinties, the Taub family. It is not a unique vineyard or winery, but by utilizing vineyards in different locations in California regions and different clones of the same grape, they work optimally towards a complete version of what wine in California has to offer in a fairly responsible price range. . "Mon Frère" is an ode to those special and rare friends who feel like family and for whom you are happy to bring out your best bottle. The wines are incredibly versatile and a testable proof of what their grape can offer. The presentation honors in a pleasant way what friendship has to offer in all its forms ... In good and bad times!

Angry Bunch

This more than remarkable wine domain exudes pure Rock and Roll! Wines for tough men, quirky musicians, anarchists, adventurers and other alternative artists. Only their catchy introduction film about the history of "The Angry Bunch" will allow you to sit back amused and interested. The entire symbolic journey from the old world to the new West is presented in an entertaining and humorous way and makes you yearn for a delicious bottle of Angry Zinfandel! Lodi is the unofficial capital of the Zinfandel and is the place where the original Angry Bunch was the first to put its feet in the ground. The presentation is also very American and "Hits you right in the face"! "All nicely brought and packaged", we hear you think ... Of course there shouldn't be any wine behind it that would make us happy to cross the ocean!
