Man Brown! MAN BROWN!!

Somebody somewhere said something about how dull people rarely make history.

Maybe it was Oscar Wilde. It could have been a feminist mantra of some kind. Listen, we’ve been out of school for a while. We don’t remember this stuff so well any longer.

What we’re sure about, Wine.Woot customer, is that Stillman Brown is out there in San Miguel being wholly un-dull. Stillman Brown doesn’t play it safe with the banal varietals, no. Feast your eyes on the Chateau Abalone Verdejo. It’s the first 100 percent Verdejo from any Californian coastal county. Boom. Different.

There’s also Dry Rosé on offer here. DON’T YOU ROLL YOUR EYES. It’s getting warmer out and you’re going to sit down on the porch with your big ol’ red and you’ll WISH you had this unusual bottle on your table with its crisp acidity and awesome label. Look at the label. You won’t find that kind of art on Sutter Home’s stuff.

For just $54.99 you get four glorious bottles of concentrated revolution. It’s an avant-garde bargain! Avant-bargain!

Features

2013 Chateau Abalone Verdejo 750ml 3-Pack

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).


2013 Pink Zeppelin Dry Rose, Paso Robles 750ml

A return to the style of the Grenache/Syrah-dominated 2010 and 2011 vintages of Pink Zeppelin, once again a blend of low-yielding Hall and Gill vineyard fruit – so much so that we were only able to bottle half what we have made in previous vintages.  We need bigger buckets!  The floral and fruit tones are fresh and vivid, the wine perfectly balanced with crisp acidity and a long, clean finish.  The label art is from an uncommissioned portrait done from memory by the artist, who presented it to Stillman as a birthday gift;  definitely one of the wildest labels on any Zeppelin wine, which is saying something.

Winery Details

Zeppelin Winery

Owner:
Stillman Brown
Founded:
2009
Location:
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.
