This year we listened to our members and are delivering on our promise! 2018 has some changes in store including members now having the ability to choose what they would like as their allocation from our newest and most limited releases. Finally!
With all the great wine being released its nice to be able to personally select what you want in your cellar. Who doesn’t like being able to call the shots? We understand it can be a little difficult to choose the 4 bottles you want without being able to try them first. Here comes the second change to 2018! We just hosted our first (of two) Preview Tastings this past weekend. At this event, our Optu members were able to taste the wines before they are even released, so they can make a more educated decision for their allocation. Below are the wines we tasted this past weekend that are set to be released in the first half of the year.
2015 Red Mountain Merlot – February Release
2015 Optu Red Mountain – February Release
2015 Blackwood Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon – February Release
2015 Red Mountain Malbec – Bonus Wine!
2017 Quintessence Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc – April Release
*this wine is still in The Ovium (our special barrel specifically for Sauvignon Blanc) so was not able to make it to the party
2015 The Canyons Vineyard Red Wine – April Release
2015 Quintessence Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – April Release
2015 Red Heaven Cabernet Sauvignon – April Release
*with only 144 cases produced and more members than bottles, we saved this wine so we could allocate it instead of pour it
2015 Quintessence Vineyard Malbec- Bonus Wine!
If you are currently an Optu member and weren’t able to make it, don’t fear! Our second Preview Tasting will be hosted in July. Now is the perfect time to join if you aren’t already part of the Fidelitas family. One easy step and you can get in on our first release of the year happening in just one week.
