We are small. Our hands, our feet, our minds are in the wine. We make wine from vineyards that are distinguished sometimes by being ignored. Our wine often does not resemble other wines, but we are not renegades. We are students. Our projects are not always experiments-- sometimes we know what we are doing--but they are always acts of emulation, looking up at the work of others we admire.
We have just embarked on an amazing project: to create a winery in the middle of a city. With this new home, we will return winemaking to the banks of the Los Angeles River.

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.
