ABOUT GUTHRIE FAMILY WINES Blair and Caroline Guthrie are making honest wines, farmed responsibly. Their baby side project (only 600 cases a year) is filled with so much love – their wines are comforting and lighthearted as a Sunday morning dance party in your bathrobe. Beneath that, they are strongly focused on preserving and encouraging the good in the world – environmentally, ethically and everything in between
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE Given he was a graphic designer in his pre-wine life, Blair designs all of his labels! This one was inspired by the glitz of Las Vegas in its hey-day.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF Place: Napa Valley, California, USA Grape: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre Style: Racy yet refined
