Each year we offer craft winemakers the opportunity to create truly outstanding wines made from the best grapes grown in world-renowned winemaking regions. These distinctive wines are available for a limited time and are released under our Restricted Quantities (RQ) brand.

This year we bring you “Le Chateau Noblesse” — crafted from the original noble grapes of France— these are classic wines worthy of the most discerning wine cellar.

Craft winemakers often seek out new wine experiences from regions around the world. But no matter what other wines we fall in love with, like old friends, we always go back to the original noble varieties of France: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Our Winemaking R&D Support – Rachel Kvas, has combined the best quality French grape musts with specialized yeasts, oak and grape skins to create these four French classic wines especially for our 2017 RQ Program.

We have VERY limited quantities of each release, so to ensure you get the kit you want, contact us right away to reserve yours today!
