End of Vintage! Our 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a barrel selection of the best nine barrels in our cellar. We feel this wine is a fantastic expression of just why Happy Canyon is Santa Barbara’s premier region for growing Bordeaux varietals. This wine embodies aromas of tobacco, leather, figs and ripe cherries in its rich bouquet.

"The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is bright, focused and beautifully delineated. Lime, slate, crushed rocks and pear are all super-expressive in the glass. Once again, Grassini has made a Sauvignon Blanc that shows just how well suited this site is to the variety." - Antonio Galloni

"Equipo" is the Spanish term for "team," and we are fortunate to have had the same team ever since we first planted our vines. As an homage to them, we allocated a portion of our vineyard to our “equipo,” and gave them full control over that section. The crew is entrusted with farming decisions regarding irrigation, fertilization, pest control, pruning and everything else Mother Nature might throw at them! A portion of the profits are given back to the team as a small token of our appreciation for all that they do.
