  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

This is a great, inexpensive, every day table wine. It is a blend of 3 varietals, hence the name. Very floral, just a bit sweet, but tasty and consistent. If you're not sure what to bring to a party, or open for a casual meal, this is a good choice.

One of my "go to" everyday value drinking wines. Definitely enjoyable alone and with food.

Okay – so get your mind out of the gutter and stop giggling. The name, Ménage à Trois, comes from the winemakers using three different young varietals in their wines and for the 2009 Red it seems to work quite nicely. Albeit a very naughty name! They have such a fun website that you should check out. The wine is a dark ruby color. On the nose, it is initially very heady with a peppery and smoky aroma, which then leads to dark, luscious cherries. The wine is full and chewy on the palate and then a has quick, jammy, sweet finish. Once you start drinking the wine with more seriousness, it becomes silky and smooth and goes down a treat although still quite sweet. I find this wine very rich tasting that almost makes you believe you are drinking a pricey bottle, rather than a more affordable bottle of vino.

At first, this was just kind of there, nothing special. But after a while it opened up and while having it with a meal it became pretty good.

Another favorite for every day. This is one of the wines I grab if I want an after dinner glass because it stands so well on its own. It is delicious, flavorful and layered very well.

Great mixture for a varietal wine, well balanced and very smooth. This is the perfect wine to just sit and relax with after a long day.

This blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet sure is fun. it's gentle in body, with ripe, polished berry-cherry and cocoa flavors and a smattering of smoky oak. A great house red.

Even if you donrsquo;t think you like red wine, the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit of this three-grape blend may change your mind. Zinfandel gives it a juicy character, Merlot mellows and Cabernet adds backbone. Forward, spicy and soft, this delicious dalliance makes the perfect trio.

A Zinfandel-based blend that is plush, full of sweet fruit, and immensely popular.
