This box of six wines includes Trinity Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon, KJ. Chardonnay, Josh Cellars Legacy Red, Longshot Pinot Grigio, Gnarly Head Zinfandel and Meomi Pinot Noir

Explore the classic signature varietals of the world-famous Sonoma County and Napa Valley, and the vibrant reds, whites and approachable blends of California's coastal wineries in this must-try collection.

Your tour of the Golden State starts with Trinity Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon, a popular berry-forward red crafted with grapes from sustainably farmed vineyards, and Josh Cellars Legacy Red, a premium red blend with notes of coffee, dark spices and herbs. Enjoy them both with grilled beef and lamb. Meomi Pinot Noir is a silky red, excellent with spicy short ribs and grilled marinated salmon. Next, there’s Gnarly Head Zinfandel, grown in the Lodi wine region and crafted from vines up to 80 years old. It delivers bold, rich berry flavours that work well with stuffed mushrooms or your favourite beef recipe.

No California wine tour would be complete without a Chardonnay. Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay is a customer favourite, offering lots of vibrant tropical fruit notes that match nicely with chicken, salmon and shrimp dishes. Longshot Pinot Grigio is another excellent white. Crisp and extra-dry, it has a mellow finish that complements grilled fish, savoury salads and vegetable appetizers.

This collection also comes with a seven-piece set that contains everything you need for a backyard picnic—a durable canvas tote, wine opener, two stainless steel knives and forks with polished wood handles and a wood cutting board. Just add your favourite fixings for al fresco dining! Plus, with every box purchased, California Wines Canada will make a $5 donation to Canada’s largest food rescue charity, Second Harvest.
