Local Food/Wine Journalist, Dave Faries

at Monterey County Weekly, features Wrath's Ex Dolio Falanghina in his latest column.  This grape variety is ancient and links our owner's archaeological work in Italy with his vineyard and winery in Monterey.


Thank You Edible Monterey

and journalist Laura Ness for visiting and writing such nice words about our wines.  Click here for a link to the article: Sojourn to Soledad: A Visit to Wrath - Edible Monterey Bay


Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

in its most recent review, has nice words for our 2020 Wrath San Saba Pinot Noir:
"Our pick of the Wrath Pinots by dint of its brightness and balance, and a lithe, very well-focused effort that has a firm grasp on very lively and pure cherry-like fruit throughout, this wine is fully ripe without running to excess and lingers on and on with mannerly, neatly integrated tannins that never detract from its message of continuous fruit."  We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Thank you!! 


Afar online magazine

is a great resource for those of us who love to travel.  Their latest issue focuses on the Monterey winegrowing growing area.  We appreciate being one of the tasting rooms featured; click on this link to read the entire article:


Vinous reviews are posted!

Vinous reviewer Josh Raynolds is one of the highest regarded wine critics in America.  He's in constant demand and Covid really upended his constantly crowded schedule.  We are so happy that his comments on our 2019 vintage have finally been released and couldn't be more thrilled with his critiques.  2019 Wrath San Saba Pinot was given 95pts with comments "Always a solid producer, Wrath has been stepping up their game... These 2019s are, perhaps, the best set of bottlings I have yet tasted here."


The Telegraph, England's premier newspaper

has featured Wrath, and our friends at Caraccioli, as the two prime wineries to visit when in Carmel.  Wow!  Looks like our reputation is spreading far and wide.


Best of the Year issue

for Wine Enthusiast will be on newsstands in the next few weeks.  We are excited that our 2020 EX Sauvignon Blanc and 2020 Ex Unoaked Chardonnay are included.  


Indulgent Hiking Excursions

Wine Enthusiast magazine recently posted an article titled "Trek and Taste: Five National Parks Near Wine Country".  What a fun idea!!  Spend the morning hiking/exploring and the afternoon enjoying local wineries.  America's newest national part is Pinnacles, just across the valley from our location.  Two wineries, Wrath and Hahn, were singled out as recommended visits.  For more info, click on:


Sacramento Bee features "Best Taste of what Carmel...

By the Sea has to offer" about the twenty tasting rooms that dot the retail section of town.  Six tasting rooms were chosen and highlighted.  We are happy to have been selected.  Writer Allen Pierleoni's article is very thorough, educational, and a great tutorial on our Wine Walk. Click:


Harvest 2019 began today on 9/11

Harvest is about two weeks later than usual because of the cold, wet Spring but Summer's late heat helped grapes develop the flavors we were waiting for.  Winemaker, Sabrine, toasts the grapes before heading to the crush pad.  Harvest

Newsweek magazine features Wrath's EX Sauv Blanc

in an article about drinking Monterey wines (while watching "Big Little Lies") and of the six wineries featured only Wrath and Hahn were actual Monterey based wineries.  We were also the smallest winery highlighted so it was an honor for us to be selected for inclusion.


The San Fransisco Chronicle published

a list of the "Top 10 Things to do in Monterey" and Wrath's tasting room is included in that list.  Monterey has a lot of wonderful things to do and places to see, so we feel proud to have made the "short list".  For the complete article, click here:

Corvette Stingray intro at Wrath

General Motors used the winery as a staging ground for the introduction of the newly redesigned 2014 Corvette Stingray to automotive journalists; one part of the activities surrounding Car Week in Carmel and Concours d' Elegance at Pebble Beach.  From time to time, this photo pops up on the Internet so if you see it, now you know where it was taken.  The old house in this photo sits at the top end of our estate vineyard.

"Wrath: Taking Monterey to New Heights"

says The Wine Spectator, in an article titled "Three Wineries to Watch".  The article focuses on three California wineries making a name for themselves by tackling the challenges of growing and producing Pinot Noir.   We say "Thank you" to the editors of the Wine Spectator for the praise and recognition.
