Title on all wine passes to the buyer at the time of purchase in the state of California. If you require that your wine be shipped, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to engage a common carrier to deliver the wine on your behalf. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP YOUR WINE TO A NON-RECIPROCAL STATE, YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLYING WITH YOUR STATE'S LAWS REGARDING ALCOHOL SHIPMENTS.

You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Bay Grape LLC. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery.

Because we have no control over the temperature conditions at any 3rd party carriers' warehouses, we always attempt to deliver wines to our 3rd party carrier at the beginning of each week so that you can receive your wine before the weekend. As a result, your wine may not be delivered to our 3rd party carrier the day that you place your order. Please understand that during business hours, your orders are immediately packaged and scheduled for delivery, but may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. You are reminded that various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages which may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction without requiring the purchaser, the seller or the shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Bay Grape LLC does NOT, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying for or obtaining any such permits or licenses. Therefore, you are strongly advised to investigate such limitations and to determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages may lawfully be brought into states other than California. You are responsible for all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due to your state related to the purchase of any taxable goods.

Bay Grape LLC makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The Buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wines and is responsible for any loss or damage to goods once they have left our premises. By placing an order, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you.

In 1970, the Rapuzzi family founded Ronchi di Cialla (in the Friulian village of Cialla) as an estate dedicated specifically to restoring native Friulian grape varieties. They’re the ones to thank for Ribolla Nera (or Schioppettino) existing anymore at all, as they scrounged together roughly 60 individual vines from backyards in the area to clandestinely cobble together a commercial vineyard dedicated to the variety.

Red grape: Schioppettino (Skee-oh-pet-EE-no) - The name is derived from scoppiettio, which means “crackle” because the thick-skinned berries are said to crackle in the mouth, or because the wines used to be produced with some fizz

Synonyms: Ribolla Nera, Pocalza, Poçalza, Pokalza

Hails from: Friuli, Italy

Viticultural notes: mid- to late-ripening, susceptible to millerandage as well as downy mildew

Stylistic notes: highly aromatic, floral and peppery with dark color but fresh body

Wine-specific notes: Grown on sandstone in the variety’s native village of Cialla, Italy. After harvest in October, the wine was fermented with native yeasts and pump overs twice daily, then aging in used French oak barriques for 14 months followed by aging in bottle for three years before release.

Pairing suggestions: pizza with shallot and bell peppers; prosciutto di San Daniele; backyard BBQs
