- Ancient Vine Angelica is a historic dessert wine that is made from the 130 year old Mission grapes. The recipe used to make Angelica dates back to 1891 and was discovered in the Santa Barbara Mission archives. Angelica is presented in a hand-blown bottle with a hand-made paper label printed on a manual letterpress. The cork is sealed with estate-harvested bees wax.
- The Mission Brandy project is a collaboration with Ian Cutler of Cutler Artisan Spirits in Santa Barbara. Approximately 80 gallons divided into two barrels, one barrel is currently 3 years aged and the other barrel is base wine for future brandy production. The plan is to release the Mission Brandy at 5 years aged. Mission Brandy has not been made in nearly 200 years and this will be the first release of its kind.
