• Cartons used to direct ship wine to adult consumers must be conspicuously labeled with a minimum notification “signature of person age 21 or older required for delivery” and must include a return address and other language required by specific state laws. Licensees may opt to further identify the contents, including words such as “wine enclosed” or “contains alcohol.” Free the Grapes! recommends that wineries support shippers, fulfillment companies and freight consolidators who utilize this labeling procedure.

  • Licensees must verify the purchaser’s age at the point of online purchase before completing any transaction. Some state laws now require age verification using a state-approved vendor, or by receiving a copy of the purchaser’s drivers license, prior to the completion of the transaction. Additionally, licensees must notify purchasers that the recipient will be asked to show identification upon delivery.

What's New

Always a happy time around the winery when we get to finally show off what has taken years to get readied.
The latest are- New vintage of Basket Pressed Syrah, and le Petit Rouge and a new "Winter Harvest Syrah" sweet wine. There is a Very Small amount of Sangiovese. Please call or email to get some- It won't last long so it's not listed on the shopping cart.

Next season - Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir!

History

Surrounded by orchards on all four sides, the historic Angel Farmstead at Parker Heights is a beautiful place to enjoy a picnic, taste and purchase wines and chat with the owners of Masset Winery. You will find nectarine, pear,cherry and apple orchards a few steps from the tasting room- which is housed in the restored 1905 barn of the original farmstead. This location is also home to the (nearly) equally famous Bailey the winery Pug. Bailey has been featured in books such as Wine Dogs USA, and is also head of security at the winery.

BLENDING

Most of our wines are blended, even though they may have a varietal name. Think of blending wine as prepaing a meal. Sure, you're making chicken soup and that's what you call it- Did you use some onion? Celery? And so it goes. Yes, the wine is called Merlot but it tastes better with a little Cab Franc, and little Cab Sauvignon. Come try one of our wines and you will agree that all the blank spots have been filled via careful blending.

WINES
