|The word Cholame (Sho-Lamb) comes from the valley’s original Indian settlers meaning “The Beautiful One”. Cholame Winery was started by Andres Ibarra, who from an early age had a passion for wine. The beauty of the Cholame Valley was what inspired the winemaker to see what he could grow from that beautiful region. They now offer many varieties of wine, many of which they introduced to the region for the first time.

|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.

Regularly on Tap – Alternating IPA’s, Kona Coffee Lager, Darth Czar, Caramel Czar, Citra Smash IPL, Imperial Brown Recluse, Pecan Brown Recluse
|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…
|Tucked into the hillside east of Paso Robles, along California’s enchanting Central Coast is Robert Hall Winery, where years of hard work and infinite attention to detail are invested into every bottle of wine we make. As farmers first, the goal is to nurture the land and coax from it the finest fruit possible from the vineyards on the Hall Ranch — each with its own personality and each expressing unique nuances that strive to capture the essence of Paso Robles.
|Cass Vineyard and Winery is located in the rolling, oak-studded hills between Paso Robles and Creston on California’s beautiful Central Coast. This area that the vineyard calls home offers quiet serenity for the visitor and an ideal growing environment for wine grapes.

|The Bruery is a boutique craft brewery located in Orange County, CA specializing in barrel aged and experimental ales. Founded as a small, friend & family run business in 2008, The Bruery takes it’s unique moniker from founder Patrick Rue’s family surname.
Patrick picked up homebrewing as a hobby, later to become an obsession, as a distraction to the banality of law school. Soon he was winning numerous awards for his beers and driving his wife, Rachel, mad with the messes that he would leave on the kitchen stove. Upon finishing school, he took it upon himself to draw up a business plan rather than study for the California Bar exam – a risky endeavor that shows through still today in the creative, genre-tilting beers that The Bruery prides itself on.
|When we opened the doors to our beach town brewpub on Coronado Island in 1996, we wanted it to be the kind of place where friends could enjoy great beer, a good meal and a laid-back atmosphere.
Our award-winning beer is now available coast to coast, but the spirit of our family-owned brewery hasn’t changed. We’re still sharing our passion for craft and celebrating our authentic coastal vibe–all inspired by our San Diego roots.

|The California wine tradition began with the Franciscan Fathers of the early Spanish Missions. In 1833, French winemaker Jean-Louis Vignes brought the first European vines from his native Bordeaux, where he planted them in Downtown Los Angeles and built a winery. Vignes, the founder of California’s wine industry, eventually had a street in Downtown named after him. The wine industry quickly became one of Southern California’s most economically significant and popular industries. By 1880s end, Los Angeles was the premier appellation for grape growing and winemaking in all of California. By the early 1890s, vineyards stretched to encompass Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties too, as the area’s temperate Mediterranean climate made it an ideal location for growing fruity, lush, richly-colored grapes. The landscape was prime for Santo Cambianica’s fresh ideas and hard-working philosophy.
|At Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, we’ve always marched to the beat of our own grapes.
How do you become the world’s most loved wine brand? You start with a belief that wine should never be taken too seriously and a conviction that when you follow your heart there’s no limit to how far your vine will grow.
Take our very beginnings in 1965, when California winemaker Davis Bynum first created Barefoot Bynum Burgundy in his garage. The unconventional name referred to – what else? – the free-spirited method of crushing grapes barefoot.
Fast forward to 1986. Things really kicked off when visionary entrepreneurs Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey took the helm, renaming us Barefoot Cellars and creating the footprint label we’re known for today. Barefoot Wine’s casual name and quirky persona quickly made an impression on our fans.
|Not all coconut waters are created equal. C2O® has taken extra care to select & pack what we believe to be the best tasting coconut water in the world.
Our 100% pure C2O is from young green coconuts from an especially fragrant & tasty variety that are unique to the inland soils of Thailand. These coconut are a fresh water varietal that yield a more delightful taste than the salty flavor that accompanies more commonly coastal coconuts.
|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.
