From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America’s Favorite Merlot.
Callie Collection, wine made for moments that stop time. When inside jokes need no explaining. When there’s no need to act your age. When the wine is pouring. Then, and only then, time stops. It’s that magical feeling when you’re completely immersed in a moment, surrounded by friends and everything stands still. Named after the beautiful California Coast where our wines are crafted, Callie Collection were made for these moments. And while our wine might not actually have special powers, on the right night, it will feel like it.
