RQ 2019

RJS Craft Winemaking is proud to bring you a thrilling new adventure in wine this year through our Restricted Quantities program entitled: 4Fugitives.

Fill the cellar. Fill the glasses. Here’s to the most notorious collection of wine yet! The chase begins 12/2018.
Intense, masterful, defiant or smooth—whatever the preference, there’s a tale in every wine. A wine for every tale, and a fugitive for every cellar… four notoriously great ones.
Each fugitive hails from their wine’s country of origin – offering the personification of each grape’s unique character with that of their fugitive. Winemakers can also enjoy learning about the notorious characters born of these regions, and their bold stories.
