Subject to Change Wine Co. brings a refreshing twist to the wine scene, infusing each bottle with the vibrant essence of Northern California’s agricultural landscape. Established in 2017 by Alex Pomerantz, the winery embodies a dynamic spirit that celebrates the region’s rich heritage and natural beauty. At the heart of their collection lies the Rhodes Vineyard, lovingly tended by Richard and Christian Rhodes, a sanctuary of old vines dating back decades. The ETA, a delightful mid-weight rosé, captures the essence of this terroir with its lively blend of Grenache, Carignan, Merlot, and Zinfandel. Bursting with aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, and tree fruit, it dances on the palate with a crisp acidity and a rustic Provencal charm. Crafted from organic grapes using natural methods, the ETA embodies the playful and adventurous ethos of Subject to Change Wine Co., making every sip a journey of discovery and delight.
This wine is a delightful discovery, perfectly embodying the spirit of easygoing enjoyment. Crafted in Lodi, it’s a blend of 50% Petit Verdot and 50% Sauvignon Blanc, resulting in a unique and refreshing flavor profile. Hand-harvested and whole-cluster pressed, the fruit undergoes natural yeast fermentation, including a 10-day carbonic fermentation process that infuses it with lively character. The wine is then aged in old wood barrels for five months, enhancing its depth while maintaining its vibrant qualities. With an ABV of 10.5% and only 200 cases produced, each sip of this fun and chillable red reveals layers of raspberry goodness, making it the perfect companion for relaxed gatherings and casual moments around the winery.
Maloof’s “Where’s Ya PJs At?” is a wine that defies expectations and delights the senses with its playful complexity. This unique blend combines skin-contact Pinot Gris with barrel-fermented dry Riesling, resulting in a dynamic fusion of flavors and textures. The wine opens with soft herbal notes intertwined with the irresistible aroma of cherry candy, a testament to the Pinot Gris’s skin contact process. Meanwhile, the barrel-fermented Riesling contributes vibrant acidity and high-toned nuances, creating a harmonious balance that sings on the palate. Perfect for springtime gatherings or slumber parties, this rosé-ish blend invites you to indulge in its lively character and refreshing charm. Crafted with care and bottled without fining or filtration, “Where’s Ya PJs At?” is best enjoyed chilled alongside white pizza pies or a bowl of popcorn, adding a touch of whimsy to any occasion, whether it’s a casual movie night or a soirée under the stars.
Frank Cornelissen’s ‘Susucaru’ embodies the essence of Sicilian winemaking at its most authentic and unconventional. Situated on the slopes of Mt. Etna, Cornelissen’s 64-acre estate is a testament to his commitment to terroir-driven, low-intervention practices. Embracing natural winemaking philosophies, he eschews even biodynamic methods as too intrusive, opting instead for a minimalist approach both in the vineyard and cellar. ‘Susucaru’ is a reflection of this dedication, fermented with indigenous yeasts and undergoing 10 days of skin contact and full malolactic fermentation in epoxy tanks. The resulting wine, a blend of native Sicilian grapes including catarratto, muscat blanc à petits grains, and nerello mascalese, defies traditional categorization with its dark “rosé” hue and gastronomic complexity. Aromatic, refreshing, and textured, ‘Susucaru’ beckons to adventurous palates and pairs seamlessly with a variety of cuisines. Certified organic, low-intervention, and vegan, it stands as a testament to Cornelissen’s unwavering pursuit of purity and expression in every bottle.
