The Red Wagon Society

Hop on the Wagon!

Red Wagon Wine Society

Yes, MacPhail does have a wine club.  We like to think of it as a society of like-minded Pinot Noir fans (who like Chardonnay too).  People who are natural explorers, ready to join us as we explore vineyards along the North Coast, uncovering special places in Sonoma and Anderson Valley that aren’t often on anyone’s radar.  MacPhail Wines are limited releases and not widely available in the marketplace (they tend to sell out too fast).  Wines you can hitch your own wine wagon to.  Red Wagon Wine Society members, well, they move to the head of the line.

Hop on the Wagon. We make it simple, really.
