    KJ's Exclusive Malbec: A Limited-Time Treat

    Calling all Wine lovers! We're thrilled to offer this special seasonal wine, available only once a year. Sourced directly from our partners in Chile, we bring in fresh Malbec juice in late March, right after their harvest. This means you'll get the freshest Malbec possible, available until the end of April.

    Why is our Malbec special?

    • Full-bodied and bold: Imagine a deep indigo color and an explosion of dark fruit flavors - think dark cherry, cocoa, and even a hint of black pepper. It's our richest and fullest-bodied wine.
    • Alcohol content: Varies slightly year-to-year, usually between 14-15% ABV.
    • Two ways to enjoy: Choose the classic KJ method using just the juice for a delicious, ready-to-drink wine. Or, for a bolder experience unique to our Malbec, try the skin-contact option. This method uses the grape skins along with the juice, resulting in an even fuller-bodied wine meant for cellaring and enjoying for years to come.

    Don't miss out! Orders for the 2024 Malbec will be ready for bottling in mid to late June.

    Note: This is a seasonal offering, so grab yours while you can! The deadline to order will be in mid April.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We would love to not have to include this step, but our license to produce wine has some strict rules which include our customers being required to "pitch" yeast before wine production can begin. This is simply opening a package of yeast and pouring it into a beaker. It takes about 30 seconds!

    You can also send a friend or family member in your place to finalize the process.

    Malbec productions starts at KJ in mid April and will be complete in mid to late June depending on when we think the wine is ready to enjoy!

    Great question! We will contact you either by phone or email once we have completed production of your wine. From there we can schedule a time for you to visit us in-store to assist us in the sampling and bottling process.

    Unfortunately we are not able to offer delivery or shipping of wines made on-site at KJ. The AGCO requires that all wine made on premise be picked up by the purchaser, or a designated (19+) representative.
