Why We Love It

In The Wee Small Hours: Behind the Label

The name, Small Hours, is a reference to Frank Sinatra’s classic album, “In the Wee Small Hours,” a musical catharsis released shortly after his infamous breakup with Ava Gardner. The label itself is an homage to the classic cover art from that album, with mirrored colors, fonts, tone, and lights. Even the wardrobe and attitude reflect Frankie’s tilted fedora and almost-forgotten cigarette.

Friday Night=Charcuterie + Small Hours

Friday night means time to treat ourselves and relax. Small Hours is our wine of choice to pair with our charcuterie board. I love earthy wines and it gives me a good excuse to eat my dark chocolate covered fruit. And who wouldn't want a 16% ABV wine on a Friday night! Cheers!

Great with steak

I'm usually a sweet wine drinker but this wine goes well with my steak dinner. The smokiness to it is really good, especially once aerated. Plus at 16% alcohol, you don't need much to get a little tipsy!

Sooooo Good!!!!

If you are looking for a medium to full-bodied red then Small Hours may be exactly it. Not just a silver award-winning wine with the World Wine Championships, this red zinfandel is fruit-forward with the aromas of plums, mocha, and wood, over black fruit. I am so in love with this wine. It is my absolute favorite. When I open a bottle and get that aroma, I know the taste is going to be just as magical. I definitely image being in one of my favorite places, with some of my favorite people.

My Favorite Traveling Vineyard Wine

Small hours is my absolute favorite Traveling Vineyard wine. I love everything about it from the rich fruit flavors to the smooth finish, and everything in between. This wine is very food friendly and is my absolute favorite to have with oreo's. Be sure to always have a bottle or three on hand.

Usually white wine drinker

Okay so I was nervous to try red wines, but actually enjoyed this one! I think the hints of the strawberry and fruits really drew me in. Also, pairing it! I tried this with a chocolate covered strawberry...WOW. Amazing combo. Give it a shot!

Small Hours = Big Flavors!

This Silver Medal winner is the perfect compliment to anything from a simple piece of chocolate to a full blown steak dinner! Earthy with hints of strawberry, raspberry and chocolate and a nice long finish that keeps you wanting more!

In the Wee Small Hours!

Put on some Sinatra, your favorite pizza and share this bottle with a friend! With over 16% alcohol it packs a punch and is the perfect bottle to enjoy with another. This Zin from Lodi will not disappoint!

Wish is wasn’t gone

I tried this early into quarantine and loved it, now that it’s unavailable I’m as sad as the guy on the bottle ??
