Wild Hog Vineyard Current Releases

Welcome to Winter 2019

We had a good harvest/crush for 2019. 

Wild Hog Vineyard made it through the fires with no damage. We were about 40 miles from the nearest burn. 
The fruit had all been picked, the fermentation tanks were empty, the wine was in barrels and safely inside. 

We have some great wines for celebration or everyday drinking.

We received some wine back from a distributor who went belly up. While these are a bit older than our regular wines, we have tried all of them and they are still drinking well. We will offer a “special” price on these wines, $250 a case plus shipping. Mix and match or whole cases.

The older wines:

2011 Saralee’s Vineyard Pinot Noir

For many years, Saralee’s Pinot Noir was our most popular wine. People still ask for it!

2013 Estate Bottled Pinot Noir

This wine is still on our wine table in the kitchen. We regularly have it for dinner.

2012 Lost Creek Pinot Noir

This was and still is one of Marion’s favorite wines.

2012 Nova Vineyard Petite Sirah
2011 Nova Vineyard Petite Sirah

Our Petite Sirah really holds up well with age. We did a back‑to‑back tasting of these two wines the other night and they are excellent.

Here are our current releases:
