2008 Sandpiper Rosé 

Porter Family Vineyards 2008 "Sandpiper Rosé" voted a top Napa Valley pink in blind tasting

Last month, the St. Helena Star and the Napa Valley Vintner's tasting panel judged Napa Valley rosés in a blind tasting, and chose Porter Family Vineyards "Sandpiper Rosé" as top of its flight.

"The Napa Valley rosés that impressed the tasting panel the most were the Porter Family Vineyards "Sandpiper" Syrah rosé (Napa Valley, $20), the Parajaxx from Paraduxx (Napa Valley, $23), and Peju Winery's Syrah rosé (Napa Valley, $25), each coming in first from three separate flights of rosés tasted blind."

2006 "Sandpiper" red wine to be released September 15th, 2009
Available for pre-order and shipping is included!

Our new red wine blend, named simply “Sandpiper”, will be released on September 15th and is currently available for pre-order. This wine is a lovely 50/50 Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend from our estate wines, chosen because it was the most interesting blend of the tasting trials we conducted.

“Lively aromas of dried roses, currant, lavender, anise, and pepper are interwoven with nuances of cocoa, tanned leather and humus. The complex aromatics reverberate on the palate and are framed by opulent huckleberry and blackberry fruit and plum. The palate is soft and round with exceptional length and balance.” - Ken Bernards, winemaker

“Sandpiper” will be a different wine year to year, as we experiment and discover the unique blends our property has to offer with each vintage.
