About the wine

Wine of the Week
  • Made with the same grapes that go into Randall's iconic flagship wine Cigare Volant that costs $45 a bottle.
  • Every year the blend for Cigare Volant changes a tiny bit and there are some grapes that taste great but don't go into the final blend, so Randall bottles those for the Angels.
  • Put this in your basket before Randall tweets about it to his 343k+ followers on Twitter, or you might never get to try the wines at all!

Best before
Drink now - 2020; decantation helps.

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18°C. Open/Decant 1 hour before serving

Meet the winemaker - Randall Grahm

  • Randall is a downright celebrity winemaker. He created some very famous brands (Big House Red and Cardinal Zin) and he's received tons of attention, Hall of Fame inductions, and all manner of Lifetime Achievement Awards for his passion for making authentic Californian wines... he even has an asteroid named in his honor.
  • But even a famous winemaker like Randall had a hard time selling the wines he made - so he turned to Angel funding to support his pioneering efforts to discover true Californian terroir.
  • Randall's reputation precedes him and we expect these wines to sell like hotcakes so add a bottle to your basket now or you might never get a taste!
