This is where we tell you all about our awesomeness. How we wrestle the sun, water, and earth year in and year out to make wine. It all “starts in the vineyard” is a common, if not obvious, sentiment. And for Slacker Wines, that means it all begins in the Willow Creek District in Paso Robles, California.
If Slacker Wines were forced to pronounce a philosophy it might be this: “Whatever. It’s wine. Just enjoy it.” The bottle of Slacker Wine you open is not intended to be the center of attention. It should stir no debates, controversies, or jealousies. If it does, you’re doing it wrong. Just open it up, share with friends, and the rest will take care of itself.
Slacker Wines varietal blends are a delicious break from the more ‘important’ wines from the Willow Creek District.

2018 Self Esteem ($60/btl)
Red Wine of Grenache
Candied strawberries and roses jump out of the glass, sending signals to your brain that you may in fact be relaxing on a beach in the summer at this very moment. This brilliant ruby wine showcases the beauty and uplift of dry farmed Grenache treated with care. Lingering finish of dried raspberries and demerara sugar keep hold as you salivate for the next sip. Ready to drink now, begging to be drunk this summer, and happy to hold for another five years.
2018 Stereotype ($54/btl)
Paso Robles, Willow Creek District
A perfect balance of the airy bright red fruit quality of Grenache, grounded by the structure and depth of Syrah, and countered by the iron minerality of Graciano. These three varietals create a wine that shows both power and elegance with notes of tomato leaf, creme brulee, and raspberry cordial, with hints of hydrangea on the nose. Ready to be enjoyed immediately but with all the qualities to age for the next four to six years.
2018 Wanna Be ($48/btl)
Willow Creek District
Classic zinfandel flavors of dark plums and black cherries with chocolate and caramel undertones. A smooth, well rounded mouthfeel and velvet texture makes it a wine that is maybe a little too easy to enjoy. Pausing to breath in the aromatics, one can find layers of violet and jasmine, blood orange peel and the slightly singed edges of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Good luck not drinking it all immediately, but feel free to keep it around for the next three to five years.
