We are in love with the color red and each of our red-only wine brands are complex, unique and handcrafted from grapes that give each wine their particular aroma and complex flavor. There are reds that benefit from the fog that settles over the vineyard providing protection and moisture. There are reds that are lighter in style, crafted from grapes that had less contact with their skin. There are reds to suit every taste, every table, every occasion. Falling in love with red is an affair that lasts a lifetime.

Fog evokes mystery and romance. And, in the vineyards of California – and other special places throughout the world – fog creeps in gently, like nature’s blanket, to shelter the soil and the grapes from overexposure to sun and wind. The cool mornings prolong the growing season and help to preserve the grape’s fruit flavors and aromas. Nature’s coolness also helps darken the color of the wine – delighting the eye when poured in the glass. Let Fog create its own special magic for you and your family and friends.
Inspired by miles of vineyards kissed by fog, our label suggests the gentle meeting of earth and sky. The rich burst of red on the label and capsule suggest the deepening color of the grapes on the vine as they wait for perfect ripeness under a blanket of fog.
Varietals You Might Find Under This Brand: Zinfandel
Our Nouveau Muse (Fr: New Muse) wines are truly inspired. These lightly romantic wines are filled with panache much like the Art Nouveau style of their label. Nouveau Muse wines are handcrafted in an artful style that draws out the essential organic elements of the vines and the fertile earth in which they were grown. Our Nouveau Muse wines consist of wines that are light, fruity and as playful as a summersault in the vineyard. They will inspire your own personal muse and fire your imagination.
The fanciful label is designed in the Art Nouveau style – an art movement characterized by organic motifs especially floral and plant-inspired shapes, as well as highly stylized, flowing curvilinear forms.
Varietals You Might Find Under This Brand: Rosato, Sangiovese, Gamay
Our Pied Violet (Fr: Purple Foot) pays tribute to the foot treading of grapes – a long-ago, labor-intensive crushing process that has been around almost as long as wine itself. Pied Violet is in a class by itself and commemorates a back-to-basics, handcrafted approach to winemaking. We dedicate it to those early lovers of wine who tread the grapes with such passion and purpose and who charted a course through viticultural history to bring us such sheer pleasure.
