Note about the Signature Series wines:

This very limited vintage is the first produced, bottled and sold in Hickman County from Hickman County grapes. Each bottle is signed by the vintner and is a part of Hickman County history.

We recommend that you wait a few months before opening the white. The red wines should be laid down for at least one year, but they will improve if you can wait two to five years before opening.

Availability subject to change without notice.
