ALMA SOL WINERY

Hand Crafted, Limited Production, Bordeaux Wines

Alma Sol is a family-owned and operated, micro-boutique winery, sourcing premium fruit from unique, quality vineyard sites in California, with a special interest and focus on the beautiful Paso Robles appellation. From the very beginning, our mission has been to craft exceptional Bordeaux wines, both single varietals and special blends. We hand-pick the grapes in small lots, respect the fruit, guide its natural potential, and simply focus on hands-on, artisanal winemaking. Alma Sol Winery tasting room is in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Napa Cabernet Bottling

The date has been set! We will be bottling our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this Wednesday.  The mobile bottler will be coming in and working with us to get the one single barrel of Cabernet into the approximately 276 bottles.  We are very happy with flavors and structure of the Cabernet. This vintage should really be a crowd pleaser. To make this even more special, we have put together some really nice packaging for this vintage. Besides for great wine, we have ordered a larger, more robust bottle, special corks that are longer and include the vintage and AVA designate, and a modified label that has embossing and a spot varnish. You may also catch that we have increased the size of our Alma Sol logo on the front label. So, keep you eye out for more information on the actual bottling and the release information.

It's official, we can finally say that the 2012 Alma Sol harvest has begun. Oddly enough, we can also say that it is about to end seeing as the weather is turning quickly and winter will be here by the end of the week.  We will be sharing more about the harvest with you in the coming days but we wanted to give you a quick update.
