Our Ascendance wine series began with the creation of Triumphant in 2003. Born from the desire to craft a Bordeaux-style blend from El Dorado County grapes, we named this wine after the monumental achievement of a group of passionate people playing with grapes in the foothills…who somehow managed to blend a wine that reviled the best California interpretations of a French Bordeaux-style blend.
The reviews from our loyal customers lead us to continue on this journey—expanding our Premium Blends to include: Victorie – A Rhône-style blend modeled after the French classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape; Campione – Our version of the Italian “Super Tuscan” blends made from ‘unsanctioned’ grape varieties; Quijote – The bombastic “Super Spaniard” Rioja-style blend made from varietals found in the Iberian Peninsula; and Xpealidocious – Envisioned to pay homage to our fellow ‘renegade’ California winemakers who are willing to live outside the box in the pursuit of formulating unconventional red wine blends.
Since 2003, our Ascendance Series wines have received numerous Gold, Silver and Bronze medals from local, state and leading wine industry competitions.
Traditionally these wines have only been offered at a discount through our Ascendance and Renegade Wine Clubs. However, we are now offering our customers the exclusive opportunity to reserve cases of these wines prior to the official release dates.
Your purchase entitles you to:
- A Mixed Case of Ascendance Series wines (of your choosing at the time of the release)
- 2 – Tickets to the Invitation-Only Ascendance Futures Release Party
- And (most importantly) the ability to share the experience of opening one (or more) of these bottles with your special family and friends.
