Zinbitch

ZinBitch Rises!
The fact that we have made only 300 bottles of Zinbitch a year I thought was pretty cool. We were releasing it only to the wine club, but there was not enough to go around. What can I say, it was pretty special stuff, but it was so limited that it just pissed everyone off. Therefore, with the release of the 2010 vintage we bottled enough for the entire wine club. It is still very small production and will only be sold thru the wine club and tasting room.
