  • Purchased a bottle of David Stone Chardonnay at Walgreens. I am always open to trying Ca. wines but am quite picky. Believe me, I was extremely surprised with the Chardonnay. In fact, I compared it to a $35.00 white and found it to be actually better. It was smooth did not bite, excellent aroma and no harsh after taste. My husband went back to W...

  • Went to my neighborhood Walgreen's earlier tonight, looking for a cheap little 4-pack of Gallo Merlot, and saw this lone bottle of David Stone Pinot Noir with an unbeatable price, bought it, and was thoroughly impressed. Delicious, and I'm already looking forward to the next bottle!

  • There are lots of wine brands out there, but only some can be called iconic. These brands shape winemaking in a forward-positive direction. They lead the charge on new initiatives and dare to be different. They are established purveyors of consistent quality. Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity dig deeper into an icon of this type. Villa ... Read More

  • Just saw this offer from Chambers Street. Have had earlier vintages of this label (both whites and reds, though more of the whites with raclette, etc.) when snowboarding in Chamonix and Val d'Isère, and it's (very) good stuff. Downed copious amounts of the whites during lunch and immediately après-ski--great thirst quenchers, while also being ve... Read More

  • We met last night for our 2nd annual pre-HVS old vine offline at Pizzeria Rosso in Santa Rosa. It was a small crowd this year that turned even smaller when Larry and Lori were a last minute scratch due to the flu. Get well for today you two!

  • I was introduced to David Stone Wines 5 years ago and I cannot begin to know just how many bottles of your Merlot I have purchased but I know that it is in the hundreds. I have also introduced many friends to David Stone wines and everyone of them have also become lovers of David Stone wines. Thank you for a great, reasonably priced, wine.

  • I have shopped various stores looking for a smooth wine at a good cost. Every time I try a new one , I go straight back to David Stone . I love its smooth body and fruit flavor. I've decided to only get David Stone from now on. Friends always ask me about it at parties too.

  • Not sure if it was a bad batch....but the first sip i took tasted as if it were opened for days. It was too sweet and had a sour taste to it. One glass poured and only took a few sips than poured the bottle out. I'm a nursing mom so when i do have that glass of wine i need it to count. Very unimpressed and saddend on the money I lost in that bo...

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...
