It is an amazing time: We have established a new home, in a certain sense our first, on the edge of the Los Angeles River. We are have been nomads for so long-- winemakers working within others' walls; Scythians on trackless steppes, with our world on backs. Now, we have our own abode-- but not in the country, not in the midst of vines. In a corrugated steel cathedral, in the historic grape-growing and winemaking district of a great city. A return, and an amazing new beginning. A rebirth in the city.
And a new collaborator will join us: a fellow Scythian, ready to explore the little-known viticultural landscape of Southern California. Raj Parr-- we will persist each in our own projects and join forces to make new utterly new wines together, under this very special roof. Come visit us; see what we do. The tasting room will be open this Fall, once the permits come through. But you may reach out to us and schedule a tour; get here at the beginning. We will make our space a special home for our friends and supporters. Tastings will all be by appointment; many special activities will be offered: lectures, symposia, guest chefs hosting small dinners. To gain entrance to these events, you must become a member of the winery. You have come to the right place.

We make a few gallons of superb and super fresh olive oil from the 20 or
so varieties of olives planted and dry-farmed by the Tenbrinks around
We have decided to focus on freshness in our oil-- on something analogous to the acidity and florality in Riesling. The result is an oil deeply and brightly green in color. There is no bitterness or unripeness. It is truly not like any other oil.
We offer free shipping on 2 or more bottles.
We have a small number of bottles scattered over a large number of wines sitting idle and unheralded at our shipper's warehouse. 41 different wines; 2 or 3 bottles of most, a couple cases of a few. They are stranded, left over from a hundred other offerings. You may rescue them here. To reward you for your magnanimity, we have slashed the prices radically on some, modestly on others, but they are all reduced. Please help us find them homes!

We have accomplished the daring and difficult Futurist aim of forcing bubbles into still wine. Blowout is all about speed, anticipation, audacity: it is a Sparkling Wine bottled and released only months after harvest and fermentation. There is no patience in the making-- or consumption-- of Blowout.
