With the fires of 2020, we lost all the usual Clarice grapes to smoke. Both the Garys’ Vineyard and Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noirs were a complete loss for Clarice. As such the 2021 season will be fulfilled with a different offering of wines priced at a discounted rate. More details below
Clarice Members will receive 4 bottles each of the three 2019 Clarice Wine Company Pinot Noirs. Pricing on these bottles will represent a savings of $10-$15 per bottle compared to non-Members, should there even be any wine available to them.
Clarice Wine Members are invited to two exclusive Clarice Wine Company Parties over the next year – one held in the Summer of 2020 and another in early 2021. These two parties feature current release wines as well as barrel samples of the upcoming vintage.
Additionally, Clarice Members are invited to Parties at other outstanding Winery Partners. This year, look for parties in Santa Barbara, Sonoma County, and Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Email me for more details.
I have teamed up with Winery Partners throughout the West Coast to offer Clarice Members exclusive access to limited-production wines from other wineries, as well as Special Pricing on fantastic boutique bottling from these producers. There is a great opportunity to learn about new producers and try new wines through a Clarice Wine Company Membership.
As many of you know, I have teamed up with famed French vintner Philippe Cambie to create an exciting new winery called Beau Marchais. These very limited production wines will undoubtedly be in high-demand from collectors throughout the country. As Clarice Members, you will receive a guaranteed spot on the Beau Marchais Mailing List and first opportunity to purchase these limited production wines.

I pivoted and produced a fascinating wine from the 2020 vintage from a blend of Grenache and Mourvedre in Paso Robles. The wine is called ENOW – which is an archaic word meaning “Enough.” I thought we all had enough of 2020 and so a wine that is literally ENOUGH 2020 has great meaning. The grapes were co-feremented, the wine made according to the style of some of the great wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
To pair with the ENOW, I have partnered with my good friends at Roar Winery to offer the 2019 Roar Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir. There are many reasons this pairing makes sense but the most compelling is that the Franscioni family has long been partners with me both at Siduri and at Clarice and I consult for Roar Winery on their Pinot Noirs. I count Gary, Rosella, Adam and Nick to be some of my best friends. With the 2020 vintage they lost virtually their entire red grape crop and these additional sales will hopefully help them offset some of their grape losse
At Clarice Wine Company, I realize that paying for an entire case of wine in one shot can be a financial strain. Thus we offer the opportunity to spread out your payment for the wine and membership into 12 easy payments. In this plan, the cost to be a Clarice Family Member for a monthly subscription is $964.92 (billed $80.41 monthly). (2021 Seasons Discount to $35/month.) Members are billed on a monthly basis with the first payment occurring when you sign up and the rest on a monthly basis for 12+ additional months. The subscription will continue past 12 months if you so choose to stay in the Family! The cost includes the membership benefits described above as well as a case of Clarice Pinot Noirs. It also includes all taxes and shipping. By choosing this option you are committing to making all 12 payments. Please email us with any questions.
I have had several members ask about the possibility of purchasing their Clarice Membership in one lump-sum payment. I’ve decided to implement this and make it fun while we are at it. If you choose to make one payment for Clarice Membership by March 31, 2020 you will be entered into a drawing for an etched 3-liter bottle of 2019 Clarice Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Only 8 of these 3 liters will be produced and 2 of them will be part of this raffle. The cost to be a Clarice Family Member for a yearly subscription is $964.92 per year. (2021 Seasons Discount to $420/year.) Members are billed each year until canceled. The cost includes the membership benefits described above as well as a case of Clarice Pinot Noirs. It also includes all taxes and shipping. Please email us if you have any questions.
