Call (800) 913-1118 for availability

When you work at a Ghost Winery you're always looking over your shoulder. That creak in the floorboard, those murmuring voices around the cave's bend, the whoosh of air that comes out of nowhere – are they real, or imagined? Caused by humans…or spirits? It's even worse during harvest, when our winemaking team is a little on edge as they work late into the night. Who can blame them for hearing things…and letting their imaginations run a little wild? Harvest Witch is a toast to the haunting legends and ghost tales that come to life this time of year. Is the mysterious, mythical witch on the label a force for good, or evil?  We're not sure, but we don't want to be the last one in the cellar to find out!

This blood-red wine blend is hauntingly delicious, an aromatic, bubbling cauldron of red grape varieties that erupts into flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and dark blueberry. With fiery notes of black pepper and leather that beckon and tease, this spellbinding wine will disappear quickly, almost like a puff of smoke.

Don't let the witch get ya!

On the Vine

2012 was a vintage for the record books in Napa Valley, with a near perfect growing season that featured warm days, cool evenings and no heat spikes or rain events to speak of. Across Napa Valley, this ideal weather pattern resulted in normal bud break, flowering and fruit set, along with slow, even ripening. The fruit from the 2012 harvest was simply exceptional, with deep color, good acid and highly concentrated flavor.
