Lola Collection

  • 2019 LOLA Rosé of Pinot NoirUS$20.00

    LOLA Rosé of Pinot Noir is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown on our younger vines in Mendocino and Sonoma Coast. The grapes were picked slightly under-ripe and lightly crushed by foot, then pressed off the skins after 8 hours. We do add a small amount of skins and stems to the press juice during fermentation which adds a bit more vibrancy and structure to the finished wine. The 2019 LOLA Rose of Pinot Noir is vibrant, with a bright pink color and aromas of cherry and guava. Its bright acidity and crispness on the palate make it a perfect wine for warm summer days, and a wonderful pairing to vegetables and seafood. 485 cases produced

    • 2018 LOLA Sonoma Coast ChardonnayUS$22.00

      2018 LOLA Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is pale gold in color with flavors of tropical fruits and citrus, complimented by delicate floral aromas and a bright, crisp mouth-feel. A portion of this wine is aged in older oak going through a secondary malolactic fermentation, in an effort provide a caramelized richness to the aromatics and finish. 2150 cases produced.

      • 2018 LOLA California Pinot NoirUS$22.00

        LOLA California Pinot Noir is meant to showcase a true, pure expression of Northern California Pinot Noir. It is made from grapes grown on our vineyards in Mendocino, Russian River Valley and Monterey, with each region lending unique elements to the structure and aromatics of the finished wine. The 2018 vintage was exceptional across the board for Pinot Noir grown in Northern California! The super long mild growing season allowed us to make a wine with a deep, garnet color and aromas of black cherry, blue fruits and cola overlaying a beautiful fresh mouth-feel that is balanced with bright crisp acidity. This is our best effort to date in our attempt to make great quality, pure Pinot Noir at an exceptional value!

        • 2017 LOLA Russian River Valley Pinot NoirUS$33.00

          Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of Dijon clones 115, 777, as well as a suitcase clone from Vosne Romaneé, France, brought back by our winemaker in 2005; all of which are planted at our Bloomfield Road Vineyard in the Russian River Valley AVA. This wine is deep garnet in color with aromas of wild strawberry, cherry, red currants and forest floor, accented by notes of dried tea, rose petals, cedar and vanilla bean. On the palate, the wine's bright acidity and supple texture are accompanied by delicate tannins and a long, lingering finish. 1976 cases produced

          • 2018 LOLA Russian River Valley Anniversary Reserve Pinot NoirUS$55.00

            Our 10th Anniversary LOLA Pinot Noir Reserve is an effort to reintroduce the original wine style with which LOLA was found in 2008... native yeast fermented, neutral oak aged and whole cluster fermentation meant to showcase a pure and natural expression of Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The wine shows beautiful strawberry and cherry aromas combined with a layered, textural mouth-feel along with bright acidity and firm natural tannins that give it the backbone for many years of age-ability. Unfined and unfiltered, 250 cases porduced

            Lola Artisanal Series

            • 2018 LOLA Artisanal Series Monterey Dry RieslingUS$32.00

              Our Dry Riesling is crisp and dry with beautiful ripe tropical fruit notes and hints of citrus, melon and aromatic jasmine. The 2018 vintage saw a long, dry and somewhat warm growing season in Monterey County, allowing the Riesling to fully mature late in the season. This allowed the grapes to develop complex and balanced flavors and aromas while still showcasing bright acidity. Being fermented with 30% of the skins adds multiple layers of natural tannin structure to the wine's palate. Also, this wine was left on its naturally settled yeasts and lees throughout its 4 months in neutral oak barrels, contributing to the finished wine's aromatics, complexity and mouth-feel. 160 cases produced. This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga

              • 2019 LOLA Artisanal Series St. Helena Malvasia BiancaUS$38.00

                Did you know that Malvasia Bianca is one of the world's most historic grape varietals?? It dates back to ancient Greece over 2000 years ago and today is often used by historians to track the migration patterns of early European settlers!! LOLA Malvasia Bianca comes from the same vineyard as our Chenin Blanc, 45 year old vines on land planted in 1974 just north of the town of St. Helena in Napa Valley next to Revana and Grace Family Vineyards. The soil is bale clay on a slight east slope drainage toward the Napa River. The grapes are large and plump on densely packed clusters formed on a vertically trained canopy to allow for maximum manageability of the wildly vigorous vines! In 2019, We picked at 22 Brix, 3.22ph, on September 12, to preserve natural acidity and vibrancy. 70% of the grapes were then whole cluster pressed and the juice allowed a native cool fermentation to dryness in neutral oak barrels maintaining temperature throughout at under 72 degrees. The other 30% is fermented on the skins and pulp which adds layers of depth to the mouthfeel and firm natural tannins to the structure. This wine is racked once at bottling and has minimal S02 additions of under 35ppm total from harvest to bottling, when it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wine is fresh, bright and crisp on the palate and intense floral aromas of Orange Blossom, Nectarine and Apricot. 124 cases produced. This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga

                • 2018 LOLA Artisanal Series St. Helena Chenin BlancUS$38.00

                  Our Chenin Blanc comes from 45 year old vines on land planted in 1974 just north of the town of St. Helena in Napa Valley next to Revana and Grace Family Vineyards. The soil is bale clay on a slight east slope drainage toward the Napa River. The grapes are very small and concentrated on loose clusters formed with a California sprawl canopy to allow for maximum airflow and even ripeness of the individual berries. We picked at 22.5 to 23 Brix, 3.3ph on September 19, to preserve natural acidity and vibrancy. The grapes are then whole cluster pressed and the juice allowed a native cool fermentation to dryness in neutral to 4 year old barrels maintaining temperature throughout at under 72 degrees. This wine is racked once at bottling and has minimal S02 additions of under 35ppm total from harvest to bottling, when it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wine is fresh, bright and crisp with a hint of mature oak tannin on the palette and aromas of Jasmine, Pear and Apples. 130 cases produced. This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga

                  • 2018 LOLA Artisanal Series St. Helena ZinfandelUS$45.00

                    LOLA Artisanal Zinfandel comes from our small 1 acre vineyard located just east of the town of St Helena on the Napa River. The soil is very rocky mixed with bale clay, providing excellent drainage and allowing us to focus the vineyard toward to quality and concentration. This heritage clone Zinfandel was originally planted in St Helena in the late 1800' s. We' re proud to have gained some cuttings of this clone to graft onto this special piece of ground 4 years ago. The grape clusters are large and loose, showcasing an excellent balance and brightness in the finished wine. In 2018 we picked this on September 25th, towards the very end of a long beautiful Napa Valley growing season. The grapes came into the winery at 23 brix and 3.3 PH. The clusters were then de-stemmed and allowed to ferment with the their native yeasts in an open top tank maintaining a cool temperature throughout fermentation to preserve the fresh bright fruit characteristics. Aged in Neutral oak for six months, the finished wine is bright and fresh on the palate with aromas of wild red fruits, sweet tobacco and bay leaf. 60 cases produced. This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga

                    • 2018 LOLA Artisanal Series Calistoga Cabernet SauvignonUS$80.00

                      LOLA Artisanal Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a bright, pure expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, reminiscent of the old days of the 60's and 70's - wines that are still aging and tasting beautifully today. The 2018 vintage was one for the ages due to the extremely long, moderate growing season throughout until early November! This provided slow gradual ripening of our Cabernet Sauvignon, allowing the full lignification of the stems and seeds, and near perfect balance of natural tannin, sugar and acid within the grapes. The wine shows an intensely dark ruby color with aromas of red plum, black cherry and currant gracing the nose. On the palate, firm structure and natural tannin provide a gripping intense mouth-feel falling of into a long supple finish. This wine will continue to get better and better as the years go by and will age beautifully for up to 30+ years. This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga

                                          Always special and a great experience. The folks there are just so personable, knowledgeable and chill. Wines are wonderful and the cheese plate is delish!

                                          This was the highlight of our anniversary weekend in Calistoga. Not only were the wines and food really delicious, but prices were reasonable, the patio area was really cozy and cute, and the staff was amazing. It was very approachable for someone like me who has never been wine tasting, and my boyfriend and I both agreed that we have to come back

                                          My friend and I had such a great experience here. The atmosphere was extremely relaxed and calm. The entire staff was very informative and friendly. I would choose the Lola House over any large winery in the valley. Their Pinot Noir is one of my favorite wines. Highly recommended!

                                          Very restrictive cancellation policy. Was held up and missed our afternoon booking and was told the $25 deposit could be used as a credit for wine purchase--but only if we made it there before 4:00. Why the strict time limit on using the credit? Seems crazy. Would have happily gone the next day to purchase a couple of bottles, but was somewhat put off by the rigid policy and will probably never go back.

                                          A true Napa Valley gem! This was our first visit to Lola and found some amazing wines and hospitality that was over the top. Corey guided us through a tasting that opened our eyes to varietals we have never enjoyed in the past but Lola changed our minds! The dry riesling is nothing like you've ever had and will be sure to make you a forever fan! The ambience of the little restored home is very inviting with all the perfect welcoming touches and decor. We will definitely make this one of our must-stops any time in Calistoga!

                                          We booked a tasting here mostly because there was a reservation available and it was close to us. We're so glad we stumbled across LOLA! The wines were super interesting and well-priced, and the service was excellent. Bonus: cute dogs that like pets! It was fun coming here after our visit to a bigger winery. Both experiences were fun and complemented each other nicely. We'll definitely be back!

                                          This was the only winery that we went to on our trip to Calistoga. The exterior is very unassuming and it is facing the busy street so we thought it wasn't going to be good, even though it had great reviews. BUT it surpassed my expectations. When we walked in we were a little early (30 mins) so we asked if they could take us early. The man serving was so nice and said yes yes of course and seated us right away. The seating area is in the backyard of a small house that was converted into a winery. The house belonged to the family. It is surrounded by a wooden picket fence and lots of plants. What's great is the trees provide perfect shade so that you get some light but you're not scorched by the sun. They were playing rastafarian music and it felt really relaxing. My husband said that it reminded him of Santa Cruz. It is the opposite of a large commercial winery. The people who pour the wines are all family and you are treated like a real guest, it's warm and friendly AND the wine is sooo good. The wine is very unique and full of interesting stories that are unlike the stories I have been told at other wineries. Aaanyway, it feels like you are in a friend's backyard chilling out and being treated to some good wine. It was not expensive either. Unpretentious is a good word to describe it. I'd recommend it and I'd go back again sometime if I'm lucky enough to be in that area again.

                                          The Owner, Rafaela (sp? Rafa for short) is a lovely woman who truly cares about the people who visit. She is a true delight! The garden setting is lovely and makes you go "ahhhh" (as in very relaxing, spa like experience). Rafa seemed appalled when we mentioned that another place was hot with no fans for comfort. Here there is a fan, with a bottle of water provided for hydration. The wines were lovely as well. We bought the Rose for $20. Definitely recommend!

                                          As a local, I don’t know why I waited so long to visit Lola. But as I heard more and more about their very special wines, I was able to book a tasting for three yesterday. The garden tasting areas are lush and cozy, the wines spectacular, owners Rafaela & Seth tell their wonderful story. It was such a lovely visit, the ambiance and presentation so charming I immediately joined their wine club and I look forward to enjoying their wines often.

                                          Worth the visit! Make it your first stop. Their wines were made from”historical vines” … my favorites were Malvessia & Pinot Noir Russian River. Best paired with their Bottarga. Corey took time out to explain each wine and best paired with food. My friend enjoyed their Chenin Blanc, and Corey called the working wine. He told us about Calistoga’s wine community and recommended places to dine in their quaint town.

                                          LOLA is a small, family-owned winery that is a must-visit for us now. The tasting room is beautiful, the people are lovely (Rafaella was our guide, and she was just so great), and the wine is excellent. Great ambiance, and they make you feel as part of the family.

                                          My friends and I visited multiple wineries and tasting rooms the day we visited Lolas. This was our first stop and our favorite stop of all the places.

                                          Lola is wonderful wine, made by good people. It's a fantastic way to mix in some much needed variety to your Napa Valley day of tasting. Malvasia Bianca, and Chenin Blanc, are not varietals most people associate with Napa - and very little of either is planted there - but Lola's offering of both of these are a strong argument for increasing their presence. In case the thought of a Napa tasting, sans Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, gives you pause, don't fret. Both are here, and both are excellent, while still managing to be slightly 'other' than what you're likely to taste anywhere else in the valley. The Cab is super quaffable, but with all the backbone and integrity needed to pair with all the usual fare. The Pinot Noir's might be my favorite part of the tasting though. The variety shown between the three we tasted was impressive. Like three siblings who couldn't be any different, but are so obviously members of the same family. If they don't have an open bottle of the 10th Anniversary Reserve Pinot for tasting, just buy a bottle. Owner/wine maker, Seth Cripe, says the Reserve is "meant to showcase a pure and natural expression of Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir". It's unfined, unfiltered, like all the kids are demanding these days... and, frankly, the kids are right. Finally, ask Seth's wife - and co-conspirator - Rapha, about the option of adding some selections from Seth's other passion project, Cortez Conserva. Try the bottarga. Think handmade, salt-cured mullet roe, or Blackfin tuna loin, is not for you? You're probably wrong. Both are pure umami, and pitch perfect pairings with the wines. Served with bread, butter, olive oil, and Marcona almonds. Wine makers with deep connections to the soil are common... wine makers with deep connections to the soil and sea? All that, and the tasting room is a cool, historic little house, with a sweet, sheltered patio. Dog friendly too...Lola is his dog! Just go.... you will not regret it!

                                          We had a wonderful time! The wines were great and the cheese plate to die for. We became members and brought a. Extra bottle, which we're drinking right now by the pool. Surprisingly, my wife whose usually a red wine only drinker, really liked the white wines!

                                          Lola is the best hidden gem in Napa. Dog friendly and amazing story, wines and cute ambience. Always a must visit when we’re in the area and will go out of our way to make it here. Natural clean wines and you get to meet the wine makers, to make the understanding and experience a little something extra. (And they’re awesome). They have variety and their wines are something truly special.

                                          Lola was the perfect low key winery tasting experience. The outdoor garden seating is absolutely beautiful and quaint. The wine was incredible and Tati, our server, was so friendly and knowledgeable and great at her job. We loved it-best wine tasting we did while in Napa/Sonoma.

                                          Great experience and friendly service, appreciated the detailed explanations by Cory and team about each wine poured, and most of all enjoyed all their stand-out wines (rose of Pinot noir, chenin blanc, Pinot noir, and cab sauv) so much I joined their wine club. I hope they don’t change a thing.
