Banshee Wines

Banshee Wines and Rickshaw Wines were founded by three friends from the Midwest and East Coast who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. Their fascination with wine started early in life. While their peers were drinking Milwaukee's Best, they had an af?nity towards collecting European wines and hosting dorm room wine tastings. Post-college, each pursued a career in the wine industry, ranging from importing wines, to winemaking, to distribution and sales. When their paths ultimately converged in San Francisco, they shared many meals, bottles of wine, concerts, and laughs with one another. In 2009 they pooled their money together to make the ?rst vintage of Banshee Wines Pinot Noir, which sold out in three short months. By the end of the year, Banshee Wines was their full-time pursuit.

The Banshee guys are passionate about creating benchmark wines from California's iconic vineyards as well as crafting soulful blends that don't break the bank. When they're not making wine you can ?nd them preparing grand multi-course meals, sabering Champagne bottles, seeking out the nearest swimming hole, or dancing on tabletops. Classic guy activities.

Banshee 'Sonoma Coast' Chardonnay 2015
89  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 89 "The 2015 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is rich, creamy and voluptuous, all the result of a vintage with tiny yields and warm temperatures. Readers should expect an ample, almost flamboyant wine built on yellow stone fruit and tropical notes. This is an especially rich wine for Banshee.

Banshee 'Sonoma Coast' Chardonnay 2014
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Chardonnay seems much more fruit-forward, with plenty of tropical notes such as mango and pineapple in addition to the telltale honeysuckle and white peach. It’s well-made, medium to full-bodied, totally delightful, and already exhibiting complexity. Drink it over the
