The Explore 4 Gift Pack “California Cool” (750mL)
Give the gift of the Explore 4 club without the commitment!
Each Explore 4-pack tackles a new theme: this time, we venture to some of California’s coolest spots in search of wines that capture the elusive combination of freshness and maturity that is such a badge of honor in wine today.
What characterizes “cool-climate” wines? As their makers will tell you, it’s balance. Ripe fruit, yes, but also bright acidity, which cooler weather (and longer growing seasons) help preserve.
The lineup includes an aromatic Vermentino from Santa Barbara County, a structured & bright Chardonnay from Monterey, a benchmark Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains, and a Rhône-style red blend sourced from the limestone and granite soils of the Gabilan Mountains.
The gift comes complete with our comprehensive Tasting Guide, covering everything you need to know about these wines, where they grow, who made them, what they taste like, and what they pair with–including space to record your own tasting notes.
Above all, this gift is about new sensations and the heightened enjoyment that comes from knowing what you’re drinking!
Please note, this item is a pre-packed selection chosen by our team of Sommeliers and will ship on its own (free Ground shipping is included!). Therefore, it does not count toward the 6-bottle free shipping minimum and is not eligible for Build a Case shipping.
Not afraid of commitment? Check out our Clubs sign-up page to make it official with a subscription.
