Domaine Ramonet Montrachet costs $1,257.00 a bottle. Cache-Dury Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru costs $2,302.00 a bottle. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Montrachet costs $4,810.00 per bottle. And, if you would like to try Domaine Leflaive Batard Montrachet that will set you back $5,923.00 per bottle. It gets worse. These are all white wines. They are the best white wines in the world, or so say the critics.
Many have tried to make premier white wines that would cause palates to pause and hearts to pound. But it's not easy. To make a white wine that will make an immediate impact, get better with age, and stand up through long bottle-aging requires an exceptional vineyard and an exceptional winemaker. So we thought we'd give it a try. We are not so naive, some might say delusional, as to pretend that we belong in the company of the honored wines listed above. Of course, we would not. Nevertheless, we believe we have done something special.
For some time we have wanted to make a special Okei-San white wine in homage to our current Okei-San red. Also, we have always strived to keep setting the quality and experience bar for our wines higher and higher over time.
Consequently, you will be introduced to our effort to produce a special premium white wine in your upcoming wine club release. It is called “Shiro”. “Shiro” means “white” in Japanese. We hope that you will agree that this is a special wine, both for red wine drinkers as well as white wine drinkers.
You will be the first to taste this wine.
We have priced our Okei-San Shiro at $55.00 per bottle. But we also want to give you, our Wine Club members, a special opportunity to try our Okei-San Shiro at a very special price.
For this release, on October 15 & 16 only, we have given our Okei-San Shiro an introductory price of only $45.00. In addition, you will be given your 20% club discount of $9.00, and when subtracted from the special introductory price, brings your cost to $36.00.
As always, we appreciate your support as we try to remain on the cutting edge of small lot fine wine production.
