Penny Shipping Sale at Dashe - Through Jan. 31 Midnight!

One of my favorite East Bay wineries is having a sale! Now through midnight on Jan. 31, you can get penny a bottle shipping on all their wines, which include three that are organically grown:

Dashe's unique Les Enfants Terrible Zinfandel ($24)
A light style Zin

This is a great food-friendly wine, created for a local sommelier who wanted to highlight his cuisine.
See my earlier post here for more info. You have never tasted a Zin this light before - you owe it to yourself to try this Zin done in a Beaujolais style.

Get more details from the Men's Journal review of this wine; their writer called it a "Deliciously Wayward Zinfandel."

There are two versions of this: each one is sourced from organically certified vineyards in Mendocino County near Hopland.

• McFadden Vineyards, a major grower (and now vintner as well) in Potter Valley has grown organically for 40 years, where they raise grassfed beef and herbs in addition to its 160+ acres of vineyards.
• Heart Arrow Ranch, a biodynamic farm and vineyard, that grows vegetables, raises sheep, and more.

The 2011 Riesling ($20)

This is a very lovely, very dry Riesling grown on 30 year old vines.

You might try all three or get a mixed case sampler. I can firmly recommend these since I drink them often and have several cases in my cellar.

To get the shipping discount (good until Jan. 31 at midnight), enter PENNY in the discount box.

  1. Too humble to brag on their own website, so I'll do it for them: the 2011 Dashe Les Enfants Terrible Zinfandel, McFadden Farm was chosen by San Francisco Chronicle wine editor Jon Bonne for his TOP 100 WINES of 2012 list.

    Equal parts great cool climate grapes and smart winemaking have earned Mike Dashe accolades for his McFadden Farm based Zinfandel and Riesling.
