For those who seek the best, La Gran Cima is the wine club for you. Translated to “the great top” from Italian, this phrase is often referenced in cycling when a rider has reached the top of the mountain. And that is exactly what our La Gran Cima members receive, our best small production wines produced directly from our Howell Mountain Estate properties.
Our Winemaker Laura Barrett feels that winemaking begins in the vineyard. With careful, thoughtful farming and attention to detail, she captures the uniqueness of our three Estate Vineyards in each bottle. Her goal for these wines is to showcase how very different our vineyard sites are, despite being just a few miles apart.
In 2021, our La Gran Cima members will enjoy small production 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings from our Cold Springs and Croquet vineyard sites. We are thrilled to share the inaugural release of our 2018 Cima Cabernet Sauvignon. A cellar-worthy blend of our best lots of the vintage with only 285 cases produced. The 2019 Le Colline Estate Zinfandel is a unique bottling from our Home Farm and always a Club Member favorite included in the allocation.
And as a La Gran Cima member you receive special member pricing on wine and shipping. You also have access to our selection of food friendly wines at preferred member pricing. Set your table with our Club Member’s favorite Chardonnay, our delicious Grenache, or the very popular Bici Rhône-style blend.
