Free event and open to the public!

About The Producer –

   Field Recordings is 35-year old winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.

     The Field Recordings wines are a catalog of single vineyard sites that produces wines with a sense of place and personality.  In addition to the single vineyard wines, multi-vineyard blends are put together under the Alloy Wine Works and FICTION labels. 

     Alloy Wine Works is a collection of varietal wines packaged only in tallboy 500 ml cans.  The perfect balance of inventive spirit and rural charm.  Each can is pure craft wine, not to be “hip” or “relevant”, but because we want to.

     FICTION, the original spin-off label, is a white and red wine produced from multiple vineyards and multiple varieties.  Taking what the season gives us and creating a blend made for every occasion.  Ready for tonight, tomorrow or this weekend.  

VRAC Wine Your New Favorite Everyday Red and White!

vrac-wine-franceWe are delighted to share with you the flavor and affordability of VRAC wine!

Drink like a (French) local!

Lively and easy drinking, VRAC wine punches well above its weight in giving you a comfortable wine to complement your meal or snag as a host gift.

C’est magnifique!

VRAC follows a centuries old European tradition where villagers buy their wine in bulk ‘en VRAC’ from the local winery.  It comes directly from the winemaker’s barrels, insuring that they are drinking their favorite wine at the most affordable price. Now you can enjoy the VRAC experience for yourself!

The wines of the Mâconnais region of France are nobody’s idea of a new discovery.  They have always been a reliable source for fresh, crisp, inexpensive whites, and they have remained so.

The wines that used to define the Mâconnais are just a part of a much wider range of styles today, though a large part. This ungainly region in southern Burgundy, where chardonnay is the white grape just as in the Côte d’Or, now produces far more interesting wines than those simple bistro guzzlers.

For almost 20 years, a growing number of Mâconnais producers have been approaching their viticulture and winemaking with a seriousness of purpose once reserved for more-exalted regions. At the same time, celebrated Burgundy producers like Dominique Lafon of Comtes Lafon, the renowned Meursault estate, and Anne-Claude Leflaive of Domaine Leflaive, another top white Burgundy producer, sensed the untapped potential of the region and invested in it. And they are now making excellent Mâconnais wines.

2014  |  14% ABV

$9.99  |  750ml

Fruity, light and fresh, an easy wine made in a traditional French countryside style.

As a matter of fact, the term “en vrac” means bring your own bottle. In many French villages locals will bring bottles or jugs to a nearby winery and fill them up with an easy drinking wine to use as their house wine.
