Our 15th Anniversary Party will feature the release of our 2017 FORTUNA. This seductive, robust red blend features fruit grown on Bwise Winery Estate in Sonoma Valley’s Moon Mountain District. Michael Muscardini and Brion Wise have had a long time friendship and Muscardini Cellars is the only winery to get some of the amazing fruit from the BWise Estate - for that, Muscardini Cellars is very fortunate to be able to produce this wine and we are very fortunate and are excited to release this new vintage of Fortuna.
