Layer Cake Wines are about affordable luxury. We set out to make wines that over-deliver. We fly around the world, selecting vineyard sites and hand-making wines to be sure they are true to the grape variety and the region, but never lose that stylistic thread through them that tells you, yes, this is a Layer Cake Wine. Layer Cake Wines are made on four continents and in five countries. Just when other California winemakers are settling into a nice Hawaiian vacation, we are boarding planes bound for Australia and then Argentina for harvest in the Southern Hemisphere. At the end of summer, we hustle to Italy and then Spain for the harvests there, before returning to California to make the wines here at home. Without question, our team is the hardest-working bunch in the wine business. All of this hard work is a direct result of the constant positive feedback from you, our loyal fans. We continue to strive for better and better wines every year.
