Currently Featured Wine Packs – Introducing “Redolent Wines” 2-pack $65 / 2-pack
As naturally as a rock-and-roll band is formed in a garage filled with string lights, mismatched furniture, and an old fridge converted into a kegerator, Redolent Wines began in Jon Larson’s basement when he and his new neighbor, Boyd, began talking about wine.
I recall being there in that basement-garage, many years ago, when all they did was talk wine and fermentation, and the business of running a winery. Some years later, Boyd told me he and Jon had started a wine label together.
That was 2015.
They’ve just completed their fifth vintage in business together, and earlier this week I had the pleasure of tasting their most recently released wines. They’ve outgrown playing gigs in basements and backyards for friends and family who just showed up in support. Their hearts were always in it, they continue to do the work, and they are now making wines that really sing!
I am so thrilled to offer up these two wines for you to enjoy, as i’m sure you really will. They are honest, joyful, and delicious. -Ksandek
