Our Flagship Wine
Sustainably Farmed Rockpile Vineyard - These aromatics don’t soar from the glass; they pull you into the glass. It’s deep and saturated in every way, from the black and red fruits to the crème de cassis, to the roasted earth and wild herbs.

Sustainably Farmed Vineyard - PROFOUND is the best way to describe this deeply colored wine. Black / red raspberry notes intermingle with blackberry / cassis, a touch of Worchestershire and soy sauce notes and reminds me of the Northern Rhone.

New Vintage - Sustainably Farmed Rockpile Vineyard
Each year, I feel Yves and I get closer to achieving the vision we have had for this project. This year is really showing finesse with a palate of elegance, depth, purity and sheer intensity.

The palate has a fantastic entry, with a core of insanely rich fruit that becomes a black and blue fruit compote.

Organic Vineyard - 24 remain
Savory and sensual from blackberry pie filling and dried cherries to the freshly made espresso from a Parisian café that swirls from the glass.

Sustainably Farmed Vineyard
Blackberry, black currant, salted black licorice, and air dried beef. This wine is screaming for a cool winter's night and a crackling fire.

Sustainably Farmed Vineyard
An over-the-top nose that filled with black cherry, wild raspberry, strawberries, tarragon, thyme and just a hint of lavender.

Sustainably Farmed Rockpile Vineyard

Limited Library Wine - only 7 remain. The finest Philary that we have ever produced, only 34 cases produced. At Philary Vineyards, the term “Terroir” is spelled with a capital T.
Limited - only 5 remain. This wine truly shows off what Petite Sirah is about; big, dense, dark, flamboyant, and powerful with just a touch of finesse.
