Introduced by famed California consulting winemaker Robert L. Pepi and owned by Stephen and Dennis Kreps (owners of Two Angels), Angel’s Secret Wines are made from grapes grown on a rocky little hillside vineyard at approximately 1,500 feet above sea level, just east of Clear Lake (California’s largest natural lake entirely within the state) in the Lake County appellation (Zinfandel) and grapes that come from vineyards at, or near, the top of the Mayacamus Mountain range, which divides Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley (Merlot).
Our red wines are allowed to age in french oak barrels for seven months to mature and gain complexity. During this period, some of the wine evaporates into the heavens (Angel’s Share) allowing angels to have the first taste. It is rumored that when the angels discover a heavenly wine, they have an oath among all angels to keep it a secret, allowing them to sneak down from the heavens and taste the wine any time. Our label was inspired by those Angels’ Secrets.
