The closing bell rings, and as though shot from a cannon, you’re freed from the drudgery of work, ready to leave the day’s stress and headaches behind to focus on the good things in life. We at W.O.W. think this must be what it’s like for Petit Verdot, a grape that has struggled all its existence in toiling to improve Cabernet and Merlot blends while getting almost no credit for the vital influence it brings. Fast forward to current times, and Petit Verdot is striking out on its own, ready to work independently to produce a deep colored, robust and spicy red where all the glory will rest where and with what it belongs – a very special grape variety that deserves every bit of its recent accolades.

PETIT VERDOT MY DARLING
We love the totally unique expression of this burly California red. Tasted blind, it is a mind-bender, unlike anything else that we’ve tasted. A totally unique flavor profile, and a wine we are very excited to introduce. Running the gamut of dark berry flavor profiles, with firm tannins and vibrant acidity, Petit Verdot is quickly becoming one of our go-to wines at company soirees.
Our talented winemaking team is so excited about Petit Verdot’s potential to provide an alternative for the boring, commercial red blends filling up the grocery store shelves. When our winemakers speak, we at W.O.W. listen, and we couldn’t be any happier. The sweet song of Petit Verdot is swirling in our glasses as we write this, and we know it will inspire you to try something new as well.
