Layer Cake is a wine brand created by Jayson Woodbridge, winemaker of the cult California label Hundred Acre. The idea for the wine stemmed from nostalgic memories of Woodbridge’s childhood eating his grandmother’s cake.

Since Hundered Acre costs upwards of $350 in high demand, he decided to create an affordable wine (that was more in keeping with his grandfather’s sensibilities), with these layered elements of flavor and texture. The idea was to make an everyday wine of quality and not mass production.

    Wine review by Tiboutoo


  • Okay, I've gotten to the point where I can admit that I love wine. However, I have found that my tastes seem to lean more to the expensive wines. I don't know if it perception or really the taste but given a $20 cab and $50 cab I always seem to lean to the later. The problem is that I can't have a $50 bottle of wine as my every day wine.
