Our Story

Since 2012, Shaw Winery has been producing wines made with organic grapes. We continue to strive to provide a collection of quality California wines with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Rosé and a Red Blend that are gluten-free and vegan friendly. Sourced from organically farmed family-owned vineyards and bottled in a TRUE Zero Waste facility, the wines are innovative, eco-friendly, and affordable. Our practices of producing quality wines while embracing sustainable farming and green packaging ensures that we become the industry standard for organic grapes.

Our Vineyards

Our wine is made with organic grapes. This means that the grapes used are grown organically, and production of the wine must be in accordance with standards set by the National Organic Program (NOP). No chemical pesticides or chemical herbicides are allowed, but less than 100 parts per million (ppm) sulfites may be used.
