The Hilt

Located in the Santa Rita Hills of Santa Barbara, the home of The Hilt is the large patchwork of aspects and microclimates of Rancho Salsipuedes. The coolest wine growing area in the state of California benefits from winds whipping through the Sta.

Rita Hills AVA and the most prized vineyards of The Hilt maximise the cool maritime climate, facing north to allow slow ripening throughout the growing season retaining acidity in the grapes. The vineyards are all planted on poor soils that force vines to dig deep for nutrients and naturally limiting the vigour of the vines. Low yields of concentrated grapes translate to complex wines that winemaker Matt Dees strives to showcase the elegance and precision that makes The Hilt wines stand out within the AVA. Founded in 2008, The Hilt is now owned by Stan Kroenke, owner of Screaming Eagle and Bonneau du Martray to go with his ownership of Arsenal FC.

About En Primeur

Lying Abroad/En Primeur/In Bond Wines

Wines offered ‘Lying Abroad’ or ‘En Primeur’ provide a good way to secure some of the most sought after wines at opening prices. In addition we ensure it is the cheapest way to buy favourite mid-priced wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône, so please ask us for our offers or check our website for latest reports. Prices are clearly marked in our sales literature and are exclusive of duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT. Shipment of claret and Port normally takes place around 30 months after the vintage, burgundy and Rhône usually more quickly. A second invoice for the duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT on the value of the wine is charged at the time of shipment - view current duty rates. There are no further charges for deliveries to a UK mainland home or work address. Your Lying Abroad purchases are covered under The Bunch Code of Practice which can be sent on request or viewed here.
