|Like the Bootleggers of yesteryear, Bootlegger’s Brewery grew out of the local community and has remained focused on purveying the highest quality beer to our locals. We believe fresh local beer builds a stronger community. While we started in Fullerton California, these days we’ve expanded our community ties far beyond Fullerton and have firmly followed our motto of “Drink Fresh, Drink Local”.
Where We Started
In 2006, Aaron, the founder, realized he had an opportunity to transform his long time hobby of homebrewing into a viable business while taking an Entrepreneurship class at California State University of Fullerton. He set about honing his business plan and pitched it to a class panel. Before he knew it, he had leased a small 1800 square foot building, purchased a 7-barrel brewhouse, and was well on his way in building Fullerton’s first production brewery. In April 2008, after over a year of construction, Bootlegger’s Brewery opened and sold it’s first keg to a well known neighborhood bar in Downtown Fullerton.

Tequila Fortaleza is produced entirely within the walls of their estate, using centuries old traditional methods which, although are very labor intensive, create a tequila which is unequaled in taste and smoothness.|
|Ascension Cellars began when two friends, Erick Allen and Brian F. Sauls, were enjoying a glass of wine together one summer day. “You know, this is good,” they said, “but there is something missing.” And so, the quest for something better began. They wanted elegance, body, and boldness in their wines. They wanted wines that they would be proud to offer to their family and friends.What followed was good fortune by the barrel. Vast support came not only from knowledgeable mentors in Lake Arrowhead, who have been making wine together for decades, but also from family, friends and other winemakers. All were the inspiration for two friends who simply aspired to make a wine that matters.|
|Vinemark Cellars Winemaker Mark Wasserman grew up watching his grandfather, Papa Joe, make wine in his basement in Ontario, California for friends and family to enjoy. It was only fitting that later in his life, Mark would set out to honor his grandfather’s legacy by crafting wines from premium select vineyards throughout California, including vineyards in Santa Ynez, Paso Robles, Monterey and Napa Valley.|
|Quigley Fine Wines – We are importers of artisanal wines from sustainable, small production vineyards in Italy, France and Spain. The families and winemakers behind every bottle of wine we offer are as charming and as interesting as the wine itself. It is our goal to bridge the gap between the winemaker and the wine drinker – to keep the stories behind the wine alive until the cork is popped and the wine can speak for itself…|
|Navarro Vineyards was founded in 1973 by Ted Bennett and Deborah Cahn. In the early seventies Ted and Deborah were searching for a perfect place to grow Gewürztraminer and settled on a 900 acre sheep ranch in the Anderson Valley. The ranch has a rugged terrain and climate similar to Alsace which promised that the grapes would ripen late in the growing season with tart acidity. During the last forty + years they have planted about 120 acres of grapes. As well as their beloved Gewürztraminer, Navarro grows estate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. Ted and Deborah have been joined by their grown children, Aaron and Sarah Cahn Bennett, who are actively involved in the family business.|

|Houdini and Wine Country Gift Baskets have been in the wine business, sourcing and selling wine, for over 30 years. During this time we have tasted thousands of wines and met a variety of characters including some of the best wine grape growers and winemakers in California. These relationships have allowed us to source our own grapes and work with the winemakers to create many wines that we know our customers and their gift recipients will enjoy.|
|Here in Coombsville the soils are a result of volcanic eruptions that occurred some three to five million years ago. The rhyolite tuffs and andesite breccias heaved from the earth are the parent material for nearly all of the soils in these parts. These soils, in turn, have undergone uplift, dispersion and erosion over many thousands of years.
The Vaca Mountains, which form the backdrop of Coombsville, were forced up by plate tectonics, taking layers of sediment up with them. When they reached a height they could no longer sustain, the hillsides came crashing down into the flats. This is the land we farm.
If you think of a vineyard as a vessel for extracting flavor from soil, then what you get when you sip a glass of wine is a taste of Earth’s history.

The winery is thrilled to have the expertise of the Giracci Team and the support of some-hard charging Marines.|
|Chad and Linda, sharing an unbridled enthusiasm for fine food and wine followed their hearts to wine country, tasting and touring around the globe. They only imagined living the dream in the countryside, getting back to their roots; riding their horses, tending their garden, loving the land and growing and harvesting grapes. After the two married in 1998 Chad and Linda Kearns connected with best friends and fellow philanthropists Michael and Donna Cipolla to make wine. As hobby wine makers Michael now jokes with Chad, “The first year we taught them and the second year they taught us.” That was the year that Chad put his doctorate in Pharmacy to the test using his background in chemistry to take a winning medal for their 2001 Zinfandel at the OC Fair.|

After instantly hitting it off at the Duckhorn harvest party in 2012, Charley and Maura started dating. Four years later, March Wines was created with the idea of making our favorite wine and introducing our friends and family to the most unique varietal, Riesling. Currently, working as Assistant Winemakers at small production, high-end wineries in Napa, we make March Wines to express our love for lighter bodied, complex wines, that are affordable and fun to drink!
