About Estancia Pinot Grigio
Translated from the Spanish word for “estate,” our name emphasizes our conviction that the world’s best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia, we control this process from the start—from our experimental vineyard block trials to planting, harvesting, fermenting, and aging the wines. For over 25 years, it’s this unwavering devotion, from the vineyard to bottle, that results in the consistent, superior quality of our artisan wines.

About Simi Pinot Noir
SIMI was founded in 1876 by Giuseppe and Pietro Simi. The winery’s beautiful stone cellars and grounds in Healdsburg are a Sonoma County icon. SIMI's philosophy has always been to create delicious wines that reflect the diversity of Sonoma County – from the foggy Sonoma Coast in the west, cool Carneros in the south, and warm Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys in the north and east. Throughout the winery’s more than 130-year history, SIMI has grown under the leadership of outstanding winemakers and incredible vineyards. SIMI has over 400 acres of estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley, forming the foundation for SIMI's Cabernet Sauvignon, and 100 acres in the Russian River Valley, devoted to Chardonnay. Steve Reeder and Susan Lueker lead the winemaking team, producing wines that reflect the amazing flavor diversity of Sonoma County.

About The Dreaming Tree Cabernet
The Dreaming Tree was launched in 2011 as a creative collaboration between award-winning winemaker Steve Reeder and world-renowned musician Dave Matthews. The portfolio of approachable, high-quality California wines includes a Central Coast Chardonnay, Central Coast “Everyday” white blend, North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon and North Coast “Crush” red blend. The brand’s sustainable practices are rooted in each step of the winemaking process, from vine to table. Labels are printed on 100% recycled natural Kraft brown paper, wine bottles are a quarter pound lighter than average and natural corks are recyclable. In 2013, the Dreaming Tree was awarded the prestigious “Best New Wine Product” honor by Market Watch and was lauded as The Beverage Information Group’s 2013 Growth Brands “Rising Star”.
