Our Philosophy At dog house winery we use wine grapes sourced from the best of California’s cool-coast growing regions. State-of-the-art winemaking, coupled with the art and craft of blending, results in wines that are approachable, fruit-forward and delivered with mouth-filling flavor and consistency. Screw Caps are Wine Quality Insurance • The best closure to preserve the fresh, pure fruit quality in dog house wines • Consumers taste the wine as we created it, untainted, without bottle variation • Eliminates the concern over TCA, which causes corkiness • Reduces premature oxidation • Stelvin screw caps have no effect on the taste or quality of the wine—ever • Screw caps are perfect for red wines too: aging is a function of natural chemical characters and occurs over time regardless of the closure • Convenient, user friendly package: to open, simply twist!
