2017 Winter Release!

It’s that time again – to release some new rare creatures into the wild.

In these chill days of winter we bring you four wines to warm the heart and quicken the senses:

2012 Nacré, emerging after four long years of bottle aging in our favorite time of the year for pairing with oysters.

2015 Gemischter Satz, our single-vineyard field blend of nearly 40 different German and Austrian varieties.

2015 Ost-Intrigen, a light and nimble 100% stem-inclusion St. Laurent from Dale Ricci’s Carneros vineyard. Tastes and smells like walking through a Moroccan spice market.

2014 Onavolk, our first release of Merlot grown on the schist and limestone of Rorick Heritage Vineyard. It’s silky, structured and will make you love Merlot again (or for the first time).

Allocations start on Feb 2 – check it!

FH Happenings


We are finally making the whole blog thing happen, although we prefer the term “non-fiction active journal.” So here we go! Many things are happening with Forlorn Hope. We just did our first allocation-based release this Fall, which was awesome. We had a tremendous outpouring of love from all of you rare creature fans. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We also presented our first-ever wine club & that too went exceedingly well. It is such an incredible opportunity to share with you an arrangement of the rarest of the rare creatures, limited bottling, library wines and more.

Tasting Room! Yes – yes, you read it right. We are opening a joint tasting room with Poe Wines & Farella.

Outland is located at 920 Franklin Street in Downtown Napa. Michael McDermott has designed a magical space and we can not wait until it is stocked with wine-drinking friends. Stay tuned for more on the opening, which will be within the next few weeks…Our instagram account is filled with pretty pictures & updates as well.

Until next time, cheers! Xoxoxoxo
