Organic Harvest Month Features


Meet the nation’s first organic winery: Frey Vineyards! Founded in 1980 in Mendocino County, Frey are vanguards in organic and biodynamic agriculture in their local area. After 30 years it is still family owned and operated with 3 generations of Freys working side by side. They also source fruit from over 20 certified organic and biodynamic grape growers in Mendocino and Lake Counties. There’s something for everyone with Frey’s impressive range of environmentally-minded offerings.


Situated in the sub-region of Weinviertel within Niederösterreich, Bergh is a wine growing family with a legacy that dates back to 1814. It is currently helmed by the prodigious Ewald Gruber, who runs operations alongside his two siblings (Maria and Christian).​​​​​​​​ As producers of classic Austrian varieties, Bergh brings to our book an exuberant and minerally Grüner, refreshing Riesling, and charming, fruity Zweigelt— all grown organically.


From their first release in 2011, to being named “Golden State Winery of the Year” in 2012, Chacewater has quickly developed a following for their small lot, organic and conventional wines. Owners Kelley and Paul Manuel converted their Lake County holdings to grape-growing after a devastating fire cleared their land.

New Brand Announcements!

Raise a glass to the newest Champagne to grace our portfolio, Champagne Thienot. Created by Alain Thienot in 1985 (previously a grape broker in Champagne), this daring wine house encompasses Grand Cru sites in the historic valley of Ay and the Côte des Blancs, as well as Premier Cru plots in Dizy, Cumières and the slopes to the south of Epernay. Alain’s children Garance and Stanislas preside over operations, while Nicolas Uriel (both an agronomist and oenologist) now oversees grower relations and winemaking.​​​​​​​​

Please join us in welcoming the elegant yet powerful wines from Legend! Legend is produced in close cooperation with Castoro Cellars in Paso Robles, one of the leading organic producers in the region. The winery was established by husband-and-wife Niels and Bimmer Udsen in 1983 with the goal of producing world-class wines from Paso Robles-appellation grapes. Their close-knit team of winemakers ensure that the most rigorous quality controls are upheld during the production, from vine to wine.

The Serendipity Team is Growing…

Meet Jim Hardman, our newest SoCal Director of Sales

“I started my career in Las Vegas selling wine, beer and spirits to Hotels and Casinos.  I relocated to Los Angeles and worked for two major wine and spirit distributors and managed a startup distributor.  I have built brands and territories my entire career and look forward to using my relationships and expertise in growing Serendipity Wines in Southern California.  My favorite wine right now in the Serendipity Wines portfolio is Pala Centrosere Cannonau.  I like to try red wines in place of traditional white wine parings. This wine pairs well with fish, chicken and vegan entries.  In my free time, I make Telecaster guitar bodies, wind custom pickups and create one of a kind guitars.”
