Game Night: Bottlehouse Uncorked


We spent all of 2022 exploring themes of change, how winemakers are adapting to climate change and rising to the challenge of historic weather and economic events. We’ve earned a little fun! This year, we are challenging ourselves to find wines through the lens of the wacky, weird and wild landscape of game night. From tripping over our words during mad libs or practicing subterfuge in a game of Clue.


Quarter 1  Whose wine is it anyway?
Release February

From negociants to shifting country borders, these are wines with shadowy origins.


Quarter II Mad Gab Grapes
Release May

We can’t pronounce them (say Moschofilero ten times fast) but we love them. From zippy txakolina rosés to juicy portugieser, we won’t ask you to say any of this out loud but just to enjoy as you go!


Quarter III Clue
Release August

It was the . . . skier . . . in Willamette Valley . . . with the Müller?
Quarter III is all about unexpected varietals and oddball winemakers in all the old familiar places. Who knew there were so many bankers ditching the board room for the vineyard?


Quarter IV Good Wine, Shitty Label
Release November

This is real ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’ territory. For this quarter we are seeking out wines in dubious packages – it’s what’s on the inside that counts!
