The prize

This month’s prize really is outstanding: one lucky winner will receive four bottles of wine from cult producer S.R. Tonella Cellars. Farming in Rutherford, Steve Tonella’s family has a long history of grape-growing and winemaking in Rutherford. Having gained early experience working at Beaulieu Vineyards with his uncle, Steve finally established his own estate with a painstaking approach to the traditional methods of vine training and management.

Today the wines are sold direct to a mailing list, each new release snapped up as soon as it is offered. Vintage California has secured a rare allocation, and the prize consists of one bottle each of S.R Tonella Cellars ‘Sky and Vine’ Cabernet Sauvignon (£42), S.R Tonella Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Reserve (£54), Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (£94) and Proprietary Bordeaux Blend (£124). A total value of £314.
