The Copia Vineyards 2021 Club Release is Here!

 

high-stakes

adjective [usually before noun]
used to describe a situation that has a lot of risk and in which
someone is likely to either get or lose an advantage -Cambridge Dictionary
 
 
In the high-stakes game of life, what's a good story without all the twists, turns, highs and lows? I believe we can all call this the spice of life. And when you leave the past behind to go "all in" on your future, it can get very, very spicy.
 
We started our journey in 2016 as two bright-eyed harvest interns, full of different life experiences outside of winemaking and are now the stewards of a beautiful vineyard estate all our own. When you have a full life filled with professional successes, why begin anew? Why gather all of your chips in front of you and push them into the future? In the quiet of twilight at the Copia Estate Vineyard, Varinder and I occasionally get a moment to reflect on this very question. 
 
We two, self-proclaimed wine mavericks, are now in our third leaf at the vineyard, working our sixth harvest together and releasing our fourth vintage of Copia wine to you. The journey is beautifully tricky, unexpected at times and food for our passion. If you want to accomplish anything in life, we tell ourselves, it will naturally take sacrifice and undying focus. Copia is our baby and in those early days, before there was a tasting room or a team member, Varinder and I picked up the phone, pounded the pavement and sent out emails to one and all. For us, succeeding in our dream of creating premium, small-lot wine is an actively chosen, all-consuming one. Quite simply, the answer to our question of "Why do this?" is that the risk is worth the reward.
 
Part of that reward is being able to share the next release of Copia wines with you, our treasured club members, before anyone else. With great pride, it's time for us to reveal the 2019 reds and our 2020 white and rosé! The 2019 vintage is made with the ingredients of more experience, brilliant fruit sources (including 9 different Syrah sites) and a gentle growing season allowing for longer hang time on the vine. There was a beautiful balance between sugar and acid at pick time, which was a couple of weeks later than the previous vintage. Mother nature spared us any major curve balls, the conditions were near perfect and the grapes were positively singing. What results are wines of concentration, rich color and complexity. Many are saying that this is one of Paso Robles' finest vintages to date and we would agree.
 
Classic members will be receiving a shipment of 6 bottles and Premium members will be receiving a shipment of 12 bottles - all detailed below. 
 
The Copia story continues and we will always remember sharing it with you, one-by-one. As always, you have our eternal gratitude for your enthusiastic support of Copia wines.
 
Cheers to going "all in" on life,
Anita and Varinder Sahi and the Entire Copia Vineyards Team
