Title on all wine passes to the buyer at the time of purchase in the state of California. If you require that your wine be shipped, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to engage a common carrier to deliver the wine on your behalf. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP YOUR WINE TO A NON-RECIPROCAL STATE, YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLYING WITH YOUR STATE'S LAWS REGARDING ALCOHOL SHIPMENTS.

You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Bay Grape LLC. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery.

Because we have no control over the temperature conditions at any 3rd party carriers' warehouses, we always attempt to deliver wines to our 3rd party carrier at the beginning of each week so that you can receive your wine before the weekend. As a result, your wine may not be delivered to our 3rd party carrier the day that you place your order. Please understand that during business hours, your orders are immediately packaged and scheduled for delivery, but may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. You are reminded that various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages which may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction without requiring the purchaser, the seller or the shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Bay Grape LLC does NOT, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying for or obtaining any such permits or licenses. Therefore, you are strongly advised to investigate such limitations and to determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages may lawfully be brought into states other than California. You are responsible for all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due to your state related to the purchase of any taxable goods.

Bay Grape LLC makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The Buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wines and is responsible for any loss or damage to goods once they have left our premises. By placing an order, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you.

When this wine was first presented to us to taste, it was a bit of a rough day. It was nearing five o’clock, carpal tunnel from excessive, can’t-look-up-from-the-screen computer work was setting in, and the wine went down like juice. We asked for another splash—just to make sure it was as delicious and reviving as it seemed to be. Then we asked for another, and—cut to… we were swigging the last of it straight from the bottle. Boozehound looks be damned: The wine clocks just 10.6% alcohol! That’s, like, 25% off your standard bottle of wine ABV! It fully warrants chugging from the bottle.

The wine is meant for straight-up play time, for big BBQs, for frolicking and dancing. Johannes Trapl harvested everything early to keep sugars (and therefore, post fermentation, alcohol) low; then the whole clusters were thrown into a big stainless steel tank for just a little over a day’s maceration to draw out some color before the full fermentation, and finally aged in barrel and qvevri (buried amphora!). While this approach would technically qualify the wine as a rosé, it sure looks red… and yet tastes and feels more white. Cleverly, Johannes Trapl has named this wine Uni6 (pronounced “unisex” in German), and he succinctly describes it as a red wine made like a white—a red wine that feels, tastes, identifies more as a white. We agree: Who needs dichotomized definitions or barriers?
