Team Visit to Roy Estate

Can't think of a better way to spend a winter day, than at Roy Estate. 

This was an especially sentimental visit for us, having known Shirley and Charles since they started their winery. It's a new day for the property, which survived Charles' passing, and the 2017 fires which destroyed Shirley's home. We're excited for their new building, which is gorgeous, and the perfect complement to the wines and the terroir. Here's to a new era at Roy.

Philippe Melka at Tench Estate

Garret hanging out with Philippe at Tench Estate!

"Hanging out with Philippe Melka at Tench Estate, next to Screaming Eagle. Harvest is finally winding down! Philippe was tasting the progress of various wines in different barrels such as the Tusk 2022 wines, absolutely delicious by the way! The most successful varietal of the 2022 vintage seems to be the Petit Verdot, which weathered the heat spiked very well!" ---Garret Murphy

the '22 Las Bonitas harvest!

Garret had a great afternoon with Don Surh as the Las Bonitas grapes came in!

"I followed Don Surh around at Cuvaison winery while he was working on the Las Bonitas fruit, sorting through all the berries and with the help of an optical sorter getting rid of imperfections, stems and leaves etc… then we proceeded to taste samples in the tanks and barrels, very hard work indeed!" ---Garret Murphy
