I love West of Temperance wines! Every time I visit San Francisco I purchase a case to take back to Japan - there is nothing like them on either side of the Pacific.

I’ve been drinking the wines for several years now, including some of the very early stuff. It’s been exciting to witness their evolution - the journey from "good" to "spectacular” has been a lot of fun to tag along with. I purchase multiple cases per year and always look forward to the new wines when available.

Another satisfied customer! The wines went great with our Thanksgiving meal and our guests were intrigued. I love the 2013 Petite Sirah!

My wife and I have been West of Temperance fans from the very beginning. We buy cases for the holidays and share with our family - they love it!
H.A. from Los Angeles, California
West of Temperance is such delicious wine. It makes for a perfect corporate gift, too. My clients are always blown away!
B.C from San Diego, California
2014 Merlot from West of Temperance. Pop and pour. Big mistake. I grabbed this to pair with a filet mignon and it was the perfect pairing - in 3 more years! 30 minutes in the decanter helped. This is a beautiful wine with tremendous structure. Needs more cellar time. The color is a deep crystalline garnet. Herbaceous note on the attack with rawhide. Combined with the dark cherry fruit, crushed black pepper and the very prickly tannins. Old world style and class. A tremendous wine.

I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know more about West of Temperance and your wines. I’m a huge fan! I hope everyone reading this will try something different and sample some of your Aglianico offerings. I know they won’t be disappointed. I think what you guys are doing is great - by all means, keep it up!
