tercero wines is proud to take part in BD10 and to support this site and its members. I really do strive to be an active part of this board and love the give and take of it - I’ve hopefully brought some knowledge and insight into the winemaking side and have learned tons from all of you!
I started my brand in 2006, a year after starting at Fess Parker Winery after having graduated from UC Davis with a MS in Viticulture and Enology. That was after I had already worked in both the music and publishing fields, and ‘challenged’ myself to go back to school and take science, something I loathed as an undergrad, head on.
I’ve put together a few packages that I hope give you a great overview of tercero and what I strive for - transparency in winemaking. My belief is that my ‘handprint’ on the final product should be as minimal as possible and that the grapes and process should stand front and center.
BONUS - everyone one who orders and mentions that you ordered as part of this thread will be entered into a raffle to win a Magnum of my 2017 Mourvedre Rose! I will give away 4 of these in total - at 4 different times during the day. The first one will only be for those taking part in the Grand Cru day and the other 3 on Sunday. The earlier you order, the greater the chances of getting one of these rare magnums! Remember - you’ll need to order AND need to mention that in this thread as the day goes on!
Some Like it Low
I don’t claim to be any specific kind of winemaker, but I have managed to produce a number of red wines (and my rose, of course) in the past few years that are under 13% alcohol, with a few being under 12%. Limited to 24 6 packs. And please note that I will take off the 1/2 shipping charges on my end - it’s just easier doing it that way for me

2016 Cinsaut (100% whole cluster, 10 months in older FR oak)

2014 Grenache Blanc

Mourvedre Rose Packs
This has been my best selling BD offer in previous years, and I see no reason why this year would be any different My 2018 Mourvedre Rose will be bottled up in less than two weeks, over a month earlier than I ever have in the past, and based on comments from taking a tank sample out last week, I can tell you that you will NOT be disappointed if you purchase it! I made less of the 2018 than I did the 2017 so I do expect it to go pretty quickly. Please note that these packages will not ship prior to March 1, 2019.

6 bottles, discounted shipping, $150 all in
2018 Rose 12 pack
12 bottles, $5 shipping, $275 all in
