Holiday 2023

The holidays are a special time of the year to celebrate with family and friends, give thanks to those we appreciate most, and create wonderful memories that will be shared and passed down through the generations.  In our family, food and wine are at the center of these moments, along with the people we love.   

As we head into the holiday season, we hope you will share the joy of wine and include Neal Family wines at your dinner table, gift to your clients and colleagues, or simply enjoy during a quiet moment.  It is an honor to be a small part of your holiday celebration and we are grateful for your ongoing support of our sustainable farming, wines, and family. Our gift guide showcases some of our personal favorites as well as vineyard and vintage collections.

Wishing you a healthy and joyful holiday season. 

In gratitude,
— Mark & Laura  Neal

“In honor of my 50th year making wine and my 40th year with California Certified Organic Farmers, I thought it was an ideal vintage to celebrate this momentous milestone with my first sparkling wine.” -Mark Neal

Harnessing the energy from this coastal influenced vineyard, the 2021 Mariah Vineyards Pinot Noir is a true expression of place.  This Mendocino Ridge AVA vineyard sits at 2,400 feet elevation, above the fog line, with a cool climate, known for creating expressive Pinot Noir that is vibrant and rich.

Holiday Price: $245

The holidays call for special wines, which means it’s the perfect time to break out large format bottles.  Believing wine is meant to be shared, Mark Neal has hand-selected the following 1.5L bottles which are ideal for your gatherings of 6-8 people.  As a guide, 1.5L is the equivalent of two standard 750-ml bottles. 
These magnums are aged to perfection and celebration ready!

A look at the 2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: An intoxicating mixture of cherries, black cassis, sweet oak, violet and cigar box spice rises from the glass. Layers of ripe Bing cherries, raspberries and semi-sweet cocoa dominate the mid-palate giving this wine a nice backbone and plenty of structure. The fruit is present with firm tannin and a nice acidity provides a beautiful balance. Brown sugar and a crème brulée induced finish that lingers for more than 30 seconds. Not a flamboyant, in your face type of wine, but rather an elegant, restrained and seductive style to lure you in.
