More about Cupcake

At Cupcake Vineyards, our goal is to craft the richest, smoothest and most elegantly textured wines. To ensure this, we select our grapes from vineyards that are truly expressive of the varietals that we grow. Our Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot come from California’s sun-drenched Central Coast, where the distinctive topography and climate moderated by the Pacific Ocean yields some of California’s best world-class wines. Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Marlborough valley of New Zealand, where the long days and cool climate allow the grapes to mature slowly over a longer period of time. Once harvested, the grapes are gently crushed before being cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, which helps to preserve the tropical notes of our Chardonnay, deep cherry aromas of our Merlot, fresh berry notes of our Cabernet Sauvignon, and lemon/Key lime flavors of our Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is then aged in premium American-oak barrels, adding richness and complexity to the wine. Go ahead, live deliciously.

Ninety Plus Cellars
We are taking advantage of the current economic conditions by purchasing high quality and highly rated finished wines direct from wineries at a discount and then passing the savings on to you. Price and availability aren't the only selection criteria. The wines we purchase must have a pedigree of 90 or higher ratings, best buy or gold medal accolades from a respected wine authority or publication. Other companies with a similar concept are usually buying the winery's excess or distressed wine. We are buying a winery's best and most highly rated finished wine, which they would normally sell under their own label. Wineries are willing to work with us because they either produced more than they need or sales have slowed. In return, they are promised complete anonymity, which we take very seriously. The wines of 90+Cellars are great values because we are a virtual winery, we don't own any land or bottling facility. In fact, the source wineries bottle and label our wines for us. We simply search out world class wine, negotiate a great price and then pass the savings on to our customers. Upon release, each 90+Cellars wine is assigned a "Lot" number. A lot is defined as a particular wine from a winery. On successful lots we may purchase the next vintage (if available) if the quality is the same or better. In the end, it is our goal to provide wine lovers with an outstanding bottle of wine at a great price. If you like the idea of fine wine for less money, then give our wines a try!

The grapes from which the wines are made are sustainably farmed and the winery contributes to projects intended to save the label's namesake in the wild.
