Process: Step 1
  1. 1. SOURCE THE BEST

    Our grapes come from vineyards throughout California, always selecting the best fruit that will represent the quality of 1000 Stories.

Process: Step 2
  1. 2. LET THE AGING BEGIN

    We respect tradition and appreciate that it allows us to innovate. We begin the aging process in American and French oak wine barrels to give the wine structure—a base to layer more complex flavors.

Process: Step 3
  1. 3. EMBRACE THE SPIRIT

    Each wine is finished in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This step puts the 1000 Stories signature in the wine, adding Bourbon tasting notes of char, vanilla and smoke.

Process: Step 4
  1. 4. CRAFT IN BATCHES

    The Bourbon barrel-aging process is completed in batches. Each batch is perfected then bottled, each unique and consistently bold.

BOURBON BARREL-AGED WINES

The risk that paid off. Finishing our wine in bourbon barrels is what completes 1000 Stories’ unique character.
