Bills Cellar Wine of May 2020
Cherish, a Right Bank style red wine blend (Mélange) created from our Napa vineyards and inspired by Château Cheval Blanc. The beautiful light ruby-red color is deep and intense. The first impression on the nose is of ripe red fruit (cherry, and blackcurrant), giving way to fresh, aromatic hints of rose petals and violet. A chocolate nuance appears with aeration.
Virtual Tasting ?
Shelter-in-Place, while protecting our families from the dreaded covid virus, has devastated wine tourism. Once you are free of the stay-at-home orders please come visit us in Healdsburg or order a few extra bottles shipped to celebrate life back at home. Better still - what about a Private Virtual Tasting with Bill? ( more info . . . )
May Pickup Parties
Shelter-in-place means our regular May Pickup Parties need to be moved so we have selected July 4 to start them up again. What an appropriate day to celebrate America's return to normal so click here to book your favorite pickup party day in July and we will manage the social distancing requirements of that time.
