“We are thrilled and honored to receive the Hot Brand award again,” said Georgetta Dane, Big House’s Warden (aka winemaker). “Our renegade winemaking approach has clearly resonated with consumers seeking a different kind of wine drinking experience. Receiving this award for the sixth straight year confirms what we’ve thought all along -- our unconventional wines are criminally delicious!”
