new backer reward - 6 pack case of tudor wines pinot noir

California Central Coast winemaker Dan Tudor came to the last minute backer rescue with a generous donation of (4) six-pack cases of his award-winning Pinot Noir. Each 6 pack case is available with a $250 pledge to The Global Citizen Project.

Here's what you get (one bottle of each):
  • 05 Tudor Tondre' Vineyard Pinot Noir
  • 05 Tudor SLH Pinot Noir
  • 06 Tudor SLH Pinot Noir
  • 06 Tudor Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
  • 06 Tudor Sarmento Vineyard Pinot Noir
  • 06 Tudor Balo Vineyard Pinot Noir

All the 06's received 90 to 93 point ratings in Wine Spectator, while the 05's got top scores from various other wine publications.

In an increasingly mechanized world, there are still a few handcrafted products that stand out. Fine wine is one of them.

At Tudor Wines, we select fruit from family-owned vineyards and transform it into wine using traditional techniques. These include small fermentations mixed by hand and aging in French barrels. The resulting wine has a purity of expression that cannot be duplicated on a larger scale.

The 2000 Tudor Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir was the inaugural release from Tudor Wines. By working closely with our family growers and winemaking staff, we made sure that low yields combined with maximum grape maturity produced wine with optimal flavor profiles - a balance of ripeness, acidity, and tannins.
