Derek shares the story about the wine’s name:

“I made Impromptu when I was winemaker at Lailey Vineyards. Named as it was a very impromptu moment when we went to press the fermented grapes!!  The first year it was made was in 2006 with Lailey’s property grown Syrah, Petit Verdot and Malbec. It turned out that we had very little Petit Verdot and Malbec – not enough to bottle single varietal wines, so we blended the three ferments in the basket press and that was the beginning of it all. It was made at Lailey in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2012…and now at Meldville with the 2021 vintage. I loved the name and wanted to use it again.”

This wine was released in time to be included in the subscription box for Savvy Wicked Wines of-the-month club
