The Pinot Noir grapes for our inaugural vintage of Conway Pinot Noir are sourced from the acclaimed Santa Maria Valley Goodchild Vineyard. Fermented on the skins, this Pinot Noir retains delicate tannins while displaying a visually beautiful ruby red color in the glass. We love producing Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County, and it was a special opportunity to work with this site. The coloration is somewhat deceiving, because the wine itself is surprisingly delicate and restrained. Barrel aged for 10 months in French Oak, this wine is recommended to be enjoyed on its own, or with light fare. Classic fruit aromas such as cherry and strawberry are present, with a hint of vanilla and pomegranate. Silky smooth tannins, bright cherry fruit and balanced acidity make the 2013 Conway Pinot Noir, Goodchild Vineyard one of our favorite Pinot Noir offerings to date. The special label signifies its quality, and it stands out as one of the best bottlings in our portfolio of wines.
Two distinct grape varietals define the 2017 vintage of the Duel. Merlot offers waves of dark fruit, chocolate, and plum. Petit Verdot delivers black cherry, violet and sage.
Sip wine, save Dogs!! Another great vintage of Ringo's Rescue Red is named after our very own Rescue dog and tasting room mainstay, this 100% Malbec from Santa Barbara County helps support our local animal rescue shelter, DAWG. John Conway's beloved rescue dog Ringo is the inspiration behind this project. Ringo's Rescue Red is a wine dedicated to all rescue animals, especially the rescue dogs in our community, who bring love and joy to their adopted homes every day. Proceeds from every bottle are donated to support DAWG and the incredible work they do.
A fruit forward and full-bodied Red Blend named after our Winery Dog, Rolo the Chocolate Lab. Rolo, who quickly grew from a wee pup to a great, grinning, whale of a Lab is the inspiration for this wine. Gillian Conway got Rolo in 2007, the beginning of our winemaking adventures. He is turning 12 years old this year! Each year the blend is comprised of different grapes, but always we strive to make it fruit forward, with juicy dark berry flavors, big tannins, and notes of chocolate-of course! This year the blend is comprised of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy in the company of friends, canine or otherwise! Woof Woof!
