LJ Crafted Wines is Bird Rock’s local winery that is producing high quality, Napa-area wines at an affordable price by skipping the bottling process and refilling 1000ml growlers (reducing their carbon footprint, as well!). A growler of wine right out of the cask makes a unique wine gift. Try the Dolcetto — The Dolcetto grape is originally from Piedmont, Northwest Italy and LJ Crafted is getting it from Yountville in Napa County. All their wines are made from one of the first female winemakers in California, Alison Doran-Green.

Notes from Sommelier Derek Bacciocco: It is pleasant to drink, has notes of black cherry, medium tannins and medium acidity with licorice overtones. Pairs with duck and grilled chicken. Like a more husky Pinot Noir.
The Dolcetto is $28 per growler at LJ Crafted Wines.
