unicorn Rare Varietal

Looking to break outside of the bounds of traditional wines? Explore grapes you've never heard of and you might be surprised what you find!

In wine, there's what's known as the 6 Noble Grapes which are the common varietals you'll find on every grocery store shelf: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. Just a step outside of these classics and you'll find a whole group of familiar and well-loved varietals like Grenache and Malbec. But step outside of the comfort zone a little bit more and you'll find rare varietals like Grüner Veltliner, a standout alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, or Petite Sirah, a surprisingly blueberry smoky peppery red that brings delight to a Cab-drinker's palette. 

We've found that passionate winemakers + rare varietals are a combination that can't be stopped. Explore rare varietals below!
