Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

What The Shell?

We don't know about you, but we're in it for the shell.

Don't get us wrong: this 2013 Chateau d'Abalone Verdejo is delicious. It's very delicious, actually. After all, it's the first 100% Verdejo from any coastal county in California, and with aromas and flavors of green apple, passionfruit, grapefruit, lemon, and even mineral, we can see how this wine would be a big draw.

But honestly, we're too distracted to think about that. How could we not be? We've got this Abalone Shell to think about! How often do you get a chance to get a seashell with your wine? And not just any seashell but a seashell that was plucked from the Ocean Rose Abalone Farm instead of being ripped from a rock in the wild?

Again, you're ordering wine, but you're also getting a shell. A shell! What more is there to say?

Features

2013 Chateau Abalone Verdejo 750ml 4-Pack PLUS an Abalone Shell!

The first 100% Verdejo from any coastal county in California. This Spanish variety known for its wonderful dry Rueda whites (thanks to Emile Peynaud, Stillman Brown's first wine instructor) is low yielding and thick-skinned. The wine has aromas and flavors of green apple, passionfruit, mineral, grapefruit and lemon with good acidity and a very long finish.  A wonderful match for shellfish like the Red Abalone (Haliotis Rufescens).

The enclosed shell is from Stillman Brown's friends at the Ocean Rose Abalone Farm in Cayucos, CA –it was not ripped wild from a rock.  Check it out at www.abalonefarm.com.

Owner:
Stillman Brown
Founded:

New Mexico and San Miguel, CA

Zeppelin Winery is a very small producer of super premium wines, based on the Central Coast of California. Founded in 2009 by winemaker Stillman Brown of Red Zeppelin Winery and wine veteran Dan Lewis (he's the office guy) they produce tiny lots of Syrah and other misunderstood varietals, with almost invariably insane labels.  Most can only be purchased directly, but once in a while they emerge into the light of day.
