Our Citroën H-van has been spending its evenings with another crew. The good folks over at Orange PDX took a few slabs of old barn wood and some steal to create an amazing build out for our tasting truck. Thanks Orange for letting us roam around and capture some behind the scenes moments and Wendy Etter for the great design. We look forward to seeing you all at our weekend home on SE Division and 33rd!
Our primary goal at Union Wine Co. has always been to make great wine without all the fuss and so we recently teamed up with David Cress, Eric Edwards and Story Manufacturing Co. to make some videos that illustrate just a few of the challenges of trying too hard when drinking wine.
If you’re in San Francisco and would like to try our Pinot in a can please join us at select Marine Layer and Taylor Stitch locations next Thursday, August 14 for a special event and “pinkiesdown” sale. More details are in the invite below. Cheers!

We are having a hard time believing it’s already August! The hot months of summer are almost behind us, but until then lets raise a glass to this last month of river dipping, tent pitching and backyard drinking. This month’s cocktail is a Mint-Basil Slush. The dry sweetness of our Kings Ridge Riesling and the savory basil leaves create the perfect balance. Enjoy!
3 oz. 2013 Kings Ridge Riesling
3 oz. Vodka (we enjoy Reyka)
2 oz. St. Germain
1 oz. Simple Syrup
5 Basil Leaves
3 Mint Leaves
Around 10 Ice cubes (depends on the blender)
Simply place all of the above ingredients in a blender, pour your cocktail into a glass and then go back to enjoying the rest of summer!
