We couldn’t wait to share our go-to drink good, do good, feel good bottle! Thanks to Humanitas, we can savor vibrant, succulent Napa Cab AND do some good in the world. You read that right: these folks give seven percent of all their proceeds to regional charities!

The Light Bulb Moment: Judd Wallenbrock took a Florentine vacation from his winemaker day job. Strolling through the Italian streets, he happened upon one of Florence’s great wonders: majestic carved wood doors. As he gazed upon the image of two monks handing out food and wine under the word “Charitas,” a light bulb went off.

The Give and the Take: Humanitas: from the Latin for civilization and kindness. Judd took a cue from that carving in Florence and started to build his brand. He would still make the best handcrafted, single vineyard wine for people to enjoy…but in a way that gave back to the world. Seven percent of all Humanitas’ revenue go to organizations that work to alleviate home, food, and safety insecurities in their regions.

Shed-Teau: What can you do with $600? We have some bottles and few trips in mind…but Judd did something more permanent. He built a 120-square foot shed in his backyard. He insulated it, added AC and heat, and voila! The birth of the Shed-Teau; the birth place of hand crafted wines for a good cause. He worked his winemaking magic under that roof, toiling to make better wine and a better world.

This ruby red glass invites you in with ripe blackberry and cumin aromas. Cigar box and hints of vanilla join on the palate and carry through to a juicy and lingering finish.

Steak au poivre, a delicious ratatouille, or your favorite burger (and bleu cheese) are all perfect with this bottle. Add your favorite drama flick and you’ve got date night!

Wine Reviews

This deep colored inky Cabernet shows off its  aromas of cigar box, vanilla bean and eucalyptus, with a touch of dusty earthiness that transforms into black plum, dried black cherry and wild thornberries. Tannins are upfront and tight; very cellar worthy. A dense core of black and red fruit-black cherry, cassis, baked plum and blackberry.Decant and drink now, or cellar for up to ten years. -WB 5/17
