After finishing her world travels, Crystalyn Hoffman set out to create a California spiced wine inspired by the mulled wines from Germany. The Original Red Blend, Spiced Wine was born and Spicy Vines took root and grew. The signature collection, created by winemaker Doug Hackett aka “Dougie Fresh,” has achieved multiple gold medals for its Zinfandels, Syrah, and Chardonnay. These achievements were possible with the hand selection of grapes from world-class vineyards in the Dry Creek, Anderson, and the Russian-River Valleys.
In April of 2016, Spicy Vines opened its’ long-awaited Tasting Room in the quaint town of Healdsburg, CA. Spicy Vines offers pristine wine tastings, a plethora of wine cocktails, small bites with local ingredients, and the pleasant company of the knowledgeable staff. Wine sold directly to consumer through the wine club and tasting room.
