Hello and welcome to Whetstone Wine Cellars! I wanted to invite you to a glimpse into our short history in order that you might better understand where we’re coming from and where we’re headed.

Hello and welcome to Whetstone Wine Cellars! I wanted to invite you to a glimpse into our short history in order that you might better understand where we’re coming from and where we’re headed. So here goes… I started working at Turley Wine Cellars in the summer of 1998 when I semi-jokingly told a friend I’d do just about anything for a shot at winemaking (be very careful what you ask for.). Over the following 6 & ½ years I would plant 30 acres of hillside vineyard, become fluent in Spanish, help manage over 200 organically farmed acres of grapes, become assistant winemaker, start my own label, and begin consulting full time. Turley provided for me a venue to do all those things with a continuing education in hands-on farming and meticulous, cutting-edge winemaking. To further enhance my small winery experience, I went to work in Burgundy for Domaine Dujac during a short stint in the summer of 2001. These days I am full-time debtor for Whetstone, CEO and Co-Founder of Manifesto! Wines, and a consulting winemaker for JT Wines. My love for wine has taken me down several paths that have ultimately merged in the form of Whetstone Wine Cellars. Offerings will consist of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Viognier and Chardonnay. I appreciate your interest in our site and in our wines. Stay tuned… Sincerely, Jamey Whetstone Read less

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Tight and firm, with spicy cola, fresh earth, mineral and dried berry fruit that's compact and concentrated, fanning out nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 500 cases made. JL - Wine Spectator Magazine 91 PointsGood medium, slightly hazy red. Musky raspberry, red cherry and brown spices on the nose, lifted by a floral element. Tighter and slower to unfold than the Jon Boat, but with more lift and intensity to the red fruit and spice flavors. In a distinctly dry, savory style, finishing with good definition and grip. - Stephen Tanzer 90 Points** Only 1 in Stock **
