Oak Grove Gets It Right

I’m not unpatriotic, but I find most affordable California wines not for me or the food I pair them with. Oak Grove is an exception.At about $7.99, they don’t try to show off or get in the way. They are food wines with a capital “F.” Even the winemaker notes (which I often disagree with) are correct.

At Oak Grove, they believe that the best wines are made in the vineyard. Since 1999 our winemaking staff has taken great pride in searching out the finest grapes from California’s cool appellations.
