UNCORK A PIECE OF HISTORY
While some fans sip on bourbon, wine is our drink of choice on Derby day. To celebrate, we’re offering wine enthusiasts and sports fans two special bottlings featuring the best of California's coastal wine-growing regions. Blending our family's legacy of award-winning winemaking and Thoroughbred horse racing, we are thrilled to announce two commemorative wines: our 2021 Mendocino County Chardonnay and the 2020 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. These bottles are limited-edition and will go fast so be sure to race to find them before Derby day at a store near you or online. Lucky enough to be in Kentucky? You can also get a taste on-site at Churchill Downs.
