No additives

 

Our wines are made the natural way, in small, sustainably farmed batches with no additives. Our grapes are artfully honed from the finest vineyards, so once they hit the barrels, we let them do their thing with minimal intervention. It’s not the only way to make wine, but it’s the best.

No added sugar

You’re here to drink wine, not grape soda. No reason to artificially sweeten the best grapes Sonoma has to offer.

No added sulfites

With added sulfites, at best the flavor is dulled, at worst you feel it the next day—they’re what many blame for wine-induced headaches and hangovers.

 

All about the grapes

The first step in making a great wine is selecting which grapes to use. Our red blend consists of two of Sonoma's most respected and historically enjoyed grapes, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Zinfandel

Powerfully fruity and bold without being over tannic, a quintessential component in the modern California wine blend.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The world’s most popular wine grape - concentrated and rich with just enough grip.

 

Talking dirty

 

Soil is (literally) the foundational element that separates mediocre wines from the greats. When it comes to deciding where to grow our grapes, we must know our dirt.

Clay

Clay subsoil retains moisture and minerals, a savior in dry times. Some say that clay can add a profile to wines that is similar to the soil itself—thick, round, and generous.

Loam

A warm, soft, crumbly mix of sand, silt, and clay, loam is incredibly nutritious. When blended with other soils in the right amounts, it makes for powerful, voluptuous wines.

Alluvial

A gravely blend of soils that’s deposited over many years by running water and typically contains a lot of organic material left behind from the now-gone bodies of water.

This red blend is delightful. I had my first glass last night and I loved it. I will definitely be buying more. Seriously delicious.

Elegant and smooth red blend

Bought because I LOVE these bottles, but really impressed by the wine. This red is comparable to my $40 bottles, and notably better than what my husband keeps for the average Tuesday. Do you have a white?!

A+ Wine from Instagram

I finally caved after seeing this wine all over Instagram. I was originally intrigued because I live alone and often feel bad opening a whole bottle of wine, because I know it's inevitably going to go to waste, and I also care a lot about the quality of the wine I drink. This was such a nice experience. The wine is delicious - I ordered a 6 pack of the red and rosé mixed box, and was impressed with both wines. The rosé is made from Santa Barbara grapes and is the perfect Provence-style dry rosé. It's delightful and easy to drink. Not sweet at all. The red blend is amazing. It's oaked but not too oaky, fragrant, and full to medium bodied. I would say it is the perfect balance between Cab Sauv and Zin. Truly sensational on the nose and the finish is the perfect amount of smooth. Will definitely be re-ordering. I honestly can't believe that this is the first product of it's kind. No more sacrificing 3/4 bottles of good wine because I want a single glass of wine after work. Also, the bottles make cute vases and makeup storage vessels once washed out. I am 100% on board, you have won me over, Usual Wines!

Surprised

I ordered the six bottle option and was expecting to get subpar wine in cute packaging. I did get cute packaging but also good wine. Next time I’ll order the 12.

My girlfriend loves these

I don't know where she found out about this wine, but its is perfect for us. I prefer whiskey so she keeps these at my place to have when she is here so then she doesn't waste a bottle of wine for just one or two glasses. I just purchased a bunch of these to surprise her with.
