Why You Should Try It

The Wine: Ralph's Vineyard Grenache 2018

(review by The Wine Front, Mike Bennie)

"It’s delicious. Truly. It sits in a big glass with pale colour but ribald scents of rose petal, cola, potpourri, dark plum, herbs. Wafty and pretty. The palate is fine, delicate, tightly wound but also has a juiciness; it’s yin and yang of fruit, tannin and acidity. There’s chompy amaro-like sour sweetness, brisk dark fruit and licks of herbs, leather and earth in light supply. You feel supple berry goodness bustling then tobacco-like savoriness coupled to fine, dusty tannins to close. Unadorned, delicious, elegant, fine Grenache".

James Erskine

Mark Warner

Living in Sydney Mark stumbled across Jauma’s preservative-free creations, he reached out and the pair started working together in 2015. With a thirst for knowledge, Mark’s hands-on approach to winemaking is in balance here. He takes just as much from James’s science brain as he does from his hippy-like sentience. It makes for good arguments, better agreements, and healthier booze.

She trained and worked as a chef but when her father Ralph purchased some superb land on the ironstone ridge of Clarendon, Fiona returned to study viticulture. Fiona together with partner David Swann, run a viticultural consultancy as well as their own vinyeards.

Shipping & Returns

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates.

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us at (424) 414-2040 or via e-mail at between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns.

We may make arrangements for a return and refund if appropriate, and only after we receive unopened products back to our warehouse.
