Say When is a small winery run by husband and wife team, Michel and Rachel DeAscentiis. The wines are made from hand-harvested grapes in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County. They work with small family farms, most sustainable, organic or biodynamic and craft the wines themselves, with the help of friends and family. From there, each wine is given a unique name to reflect the personality within the bottle.

Featured Wines:

2018 Weird Parties, Skin Contact Grenache Blanc   Skin Contact (aka Orange) Grenache Blanc from Sarloos & Son’s El Camino Real Vineyard in Los Olivos. Fun but different, just like a weird party. Salty, light lemon, wet limestone, and subtle funkiness.
