occasio winery web founder's collection merlot 2011

Last November’s wine club releases were awarded accolades this month, continuing our tradition of providing members with first access to some of Livermore Valley’s most highly rated wines. Our 2013 Founder’s Collection Merlot was awarded 92 points, and was named the editor’s Cellar Selection for next April’s issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. No merlot from our Valley has ever received a higher rating.

The white wine in our November release, our 2015 Founder’s Collection Chardonnay, received a gold medal at the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Barrel fermented in the Burgundian tradition, we feel strongly that this is our finest Chardonnay to date.
