FROM THE PRODUCER

From the Winery

California is known for its trendsetting eco-friendly ways, and Yellow+Blue is changing the way we buy wine with this affordable, organic, hand-picked Sauvignon Blanc from Mendocino County sold in sustainable Tetra Paks.

More about Yellow+Blue

Let’s begin with Yellow+Blue. When you mix the two together, you get green — as in environmentally conscious, forward thinking and committed to positive change. Are you with us? Good. With the high cost of fossil fuel driving up the cost of shipping, we saw the price of good imported wines rising out of range for the average buyer. In our search for a way to lower these costs for quality-conscious wine drinkers, we found a solution that is also great for the environment. Then we got a little “greener” by partnering with organic wineries that use only traditional, natural winemaking processes. The result? Great tasting, certified organic wine that’s better for the planet and available at a great price. In fact, award-winning wine blogger Dr. Tyler Colman called our 2007 Malbec “a crazy-good value.” And to think it all began when an experienced wine importer had an idea that just might change the world…one box at a time.

Toad Hollow
Toad Hollow is a collaboration of two old friends who, more or less, retired to an existence of peace and quiet in the Hollow, after a life of whirlwind world travel. Neither of these two gentlemen believed in self-denial, and over the years had probably wined and dined at every major eatery and watering hole in the universe. This natural pairing—Dr. Toad, a man known around the neighborhood as one who could sell sand to a Sheik, as well as a consummate storyteller…he would be in charge of marketing; while Mr. Badger, a gentleman extraordinaire, who had honed his palate during visits to chateaux, whilst dancing for kings…would craft the wine. It is obvious to all who knew these two that retirement was not part of their makeup, as they were off and running with their new project immediately. As you taste the wines from Toad Hollow Vineyards, please take a moment to envision these two old friends…Dr. Toad and Mr. Badger, sitting on the veranda, smiling as they raise a glass of wine to salute you. (Heaven knows that neither would turn down a chance to share a good bottle of wine.) In light of the legend just read, please keep in mind that Toad Hollow wines are very seriously crafted from premium vineyards along the California Coast. We will continue to offer you stellar wines at an affordable price.

Alexander Valley Vineyards
Welcome to our family-owned wine estate, once the original homestead of Cyrus Alexander, the 19th century rancher and namesake of this prominent viticultural appellation, Alexander Valley. We purchased the land from the Alexander's heirs in 1962, planted vineyards, and in 1975 built our winery. Here we grow grapes and produce delicious wines that complement food and enrich your dining experience.
