We promise you a luscious love affair. We’ll tease you with our bold blackberry, and raspberry nature. Add pink to your cheeks with our sassy red fruits. All while indulging you with our rich splendiferous full-bodied flavors and firm tannins. We’ll even flirt with any carnivore lover. Sizzling meat, or savory chicken anyone? If you’ve never tried a Ménage à Trois, let us be your first.

WINE ATTITUDE

Sure, we could have settled for your good old-fashioned double entendre. You know, a not-so-subtle quip accompanied by a sly wink of the eye and a secret titter. But why stop at double when there was a triple entendre just waiting to be had? Ménage à Trois examines what happens when you put three attractive, single, young grapes in one exquisite bottle.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Ménage à Trois Red brings together three strange bedfellows: Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. To add complexity and retain character, each variety was fermented separately, then blended together prior to bottling. On top we’ve got Zinfandel, a saucy tease that brings blackberry and raspberry jam to the relationship. Merlot, with its generous mouth feel and red fruits, fits perfectly in the middle. The rich flavors and firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon make it the ideal candidate for the bottom layer of the trio.

Wine Confession

Getting fresh with you is only the beginning. You see, we begin our seduction with a fresh, fruit-forward, and deliciously melodic serenade, which will be so memorable you’ll want to share with your special someones, and we’re happy to oblige. Our bright fruit flavors, and zippy aromas will never run out of ways to thrill you. Feel free to uncork us, 24/7, 365 days a year. We are your wine for all seasons and reasons.

My Ménage à Trois is...

 

WINE ATTITUDE

At the risk of sounding suggestive, we dare you to indulge in a little skinny dipping. That’s right, we’re asking you to experience the thrill of the naked grape in a glass of our lively Pinot Grigio. With nothing to hide behind, this gorgeous single-varietal wine bares all with bright fruit flavors and an exuberant acidity that makes you want to shout “yahoo!” and go streaking through the vines. Though we’re technically breaking the rules of Ménage à Trois by giving all our love to just one grape, we think you’ll agree that in this case, one sometimes is better than three. (Gasp! We’re not becoming monogamous, are we?)

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Want to get fresh? We thought so, which is why we let our winemakers run wild with our Pinot Grigio. Though technically not a blend of three this wine is most definitely a Ménage à Trois in spirit and style. Erupting with zesty tropical fruit aromas, vivid fruit flavors balanced by mouth-watering acidity, this exhilarating wine is everything you could want and more. To preserve the fresh, bright fruit flavors and zippy aromas, winemakers cold-ferment the wine in stainless steel tanks, completely avoiding malolactic fermentation. We find all of this technical talk a little, well, stimulating. Perhaps it’s time to sit back and enjoy a glass of our Pinot Grigio and simply let the wine do its thing.

Wine Confession

We’re wild at heart, and we’ll thrill you every sip of the way. We’ll entice with a decadent display of blackberry, and vanilla spice on the nose, brambly berry jam flavors, and hints of black pepper on the palate. Let’s get crazy by serving sticky barbecued ribs, homemade lasagna, or pepperoni pizza for that party we’ve been anticipating. This pairing will be sure to please.

My Ménage à Trois is...

 

WINE ATTITUDE

Here at Ménage à Trois, we must confess that we’re not saints — we’re zinners, in fact. We love a lusty grape, and our Zinfandel doesn’t disappoint. It’s juicy and bold, with plenty of swagger and spice, the kind of powerful wine that sweeps you off your feet in a strong, velvety embrace. We encourage you to give in to temptation every now and then, and explore your deepest, darkest, most zinful desires. Why be good when it’s so much more fun to be a zinner?

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Our winemakers took a walk on the wild side and found themselves in Lodi, one of California’s most renowned regions for producing Zinfandel. Lodi’s classic Mediterranean climate allows the grapes to bask all day in warm sun, and enjoy cooler temperatures at night, resulting in rich, concentrated fruit flavors, and lush, full textures— ideal for classic California Zins. We mingle grapes from some of Lodi’s best vineyards, and let the fruit get cozy with oak, which adds notes of sweet, toasty vanilla spice. Made in true Ménage à Trois style, our Zin is smooth and fruit forward, with layers of flavors that excite the palate. This wine is definitely born to be wild.

We will bring you blissful pleasure when we’re together. Once you taste our brilliant juicy grapes, there’s no doubt you’ll be asking us to join you in a fun-loving fling. A thrilling, flirtatious one with alluring floral aromas, succulent juicy peach, and the golden sweet, slight tarty taste of apricot flavors. We’re here to satisfy your indulgencies from the first sip to the last.

My Ménage à Trois is...

 

WINE ATTITUDE

Not to brag, but we know a thing or two about seduction. If you want to improve your odds with your sweetie, we recommend skipping the poetry and flowers and going straight for the Ménage à Trois. A little direct, we know, but it never fails. Our Moscato is a sexy sweetie in its own right, with lip-smacking flavors and irresistible floral aromas that have been known to elicit sighs of pure pleasure. Whoever said romance was dead surely never tasted this Moscato.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

This naughty, but oh-so-nice, Ménage à Trois Moscato is a delightful blend created by a trio of pleasure-seekers masquerading as winemakers. Made from premium grapes sourced throughout California, this wine begins its seduction with lush, alluring floral aromas, followed by luscious peach and apricot flavors that yield to a refreshing finish. Our Moscato’s sweet, fruity flavors are not permitted to run completely wanton, but instead are tempered by a clean, crisp acidity thanks to our commitment to a 100% non-malolactic process. We up the ante with cap and draining to boost intensity, and cold fermentation to preserve the delicate fragrances that make this varietal so appealing. Life is sweet indeed!

Wine Confession

Do you like to do it in the dark? You will, after we captivate you with our gorgeous garnet color, and seduce your palate with our bold blackberry and plush spiced plum flavors. But it doesn’t stop there. We also bring you joy with hints of mocha, and exotic spiced kisses, which will linger on your lips. Our supple, expressive taste with its long, flavorful finish intermingles with blackberry pastilles and hints of violet. Once you embrace our velvety Midnight Red Blend, you’ll reveal your deepest, darkest desires.

My Ménage à Trois is...

 

WINE ATTITUDE

At Ménage à Trois, we’re not shy or inhibited; in fact, we’re known for creating wines that are bold and sensual—even a tad risqué. For our exciting limited-release wine, we pushed the boundaries even further. Midnight represents the dark side of Ménage à Trois—it’s our most intense expression yet, a passionate blend bursting with dusky aromas, an extraordinarily deep color, and rich, ripe black fruit. Don’t be shy—turn out the lights and savor the pleasures of the dark.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Our winemakers are definitely not afraid of the dark. For this special wine, they wanted to create a truly uninhibited blend— something deeper, darker, and bolder than ever before. In true Ménage à Trois style, they decided that ‘more is more,’ and crafted a blend of not three—but four—grapes! Merlot adds a plush, velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance and power, Petite Sirah lends inky intensity and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors the wine is aged on French and American oak. The result is a wine that leaves an indelible impression. It’s mysterious and dark, soft and sensual— just like Midnight.

We’re full of all kinds of delights to excite your senses; lively spice, tropical fruit, and a dazzling body. We’ll take you on an exhilarating ride rich in raspberries, strawberries, lychee nuts, and flowers, with a lovely finish that’s so very satisfyingly smooth.

WINE ATTITUDE

We don’t advocate the abandonment of the traditional values. But some of us like alternatives. Some of us need to push the envelope while thinking outside the cutting edge of the box. We don’t look askance at those of you who are happy with just one variety in your wines. And we would never snicker or make snide remarks about those of you who are satisfied with two varieties in your blend. We just feel that three is better than one or two. Ménage à Trois examines what happens when you put three attractive, single, young grapes in one exquisite bottle.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

This 2016 Rosé is a madcap blend of Merlot, Syrah and Gewürztraminer. The wine was cold fermented to preserve the exotic spice and naked fruit. No malolactic fermentation here—just fruity, mouth-watering crisp acidity.

WINE ATTITUDE

Not to intrude on your personal affairs, but here’s a suggestion for the perfect Ménage à Trois: you, your significant other and a bottle of Ménage à Trois Chardonnay. A sensual blend of grapes from three signature California wine regions, this silky Chardonnay seduces with great body, luscious flavors and a delicious kiss of oak.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Although it’s a tad risqué, Ménage à Trois 2015 Chardonnay has an impeccable, California coastal pedigree. To enhance its delicious fruity flavors, we fermented the wine with a special French yeast (but of course!), induced partial malolactic fermentation, and coupled the creamy result with French and American oak, thus delighting Chardonnay hedonists everywhere.

3 Ways to Prevent Red Wine Teeth Stains

We can’t think of many drawbacks when it comes to enjoying a glass of Ménage à Trois Red at a party, except for one: the dreaded red wine smile. These hard-to-remove teeth stains strike when you least expect it, making an off-putting appearance in that group shot or throwing off your selfie game. But fear not, red wine lovers: we’ve discovered three ways to avoid the rouge-tinted grin—without avoiding the red wine.

1. Sip on sparkling water. The fizziness will help rinse away the red from your pearly whites.

2. Snack on fibrous foods. Leafy greens like spinach function as a brush to help minimize any stains.

3. Brush up an hour before. Plaque is a magnet for dark beverages—polish that smile about 60 minutes prior to sipping to keep any redness at bay.

May Advice: Gemini Gone Wild

Introducing Ménage à Trois Advice, where once a month, we put in our three cents on matters of money, love, life and, of course, wine.

You Ask…
By day, I’m a reserved professional with a penchant for being cautious and composed. By night, however, my Gemini alter ego runs wild. I become an obnoxiously outgoing risk taker with a flair for the dramatic. Recently, I spent a rambunctious evening out with colleagues—and now I’m worried they’ll never see me as the quiet and clearheaded worker that I am. How do I balance my buttoned-up side with my closeted desire to get a little wild and crazy?

…We Tell
At Ménage à Trois, we’re all for exploring the depths of every flavor profile—that goes for wines and personalities alike. As a Gemini, you’re bound to grapple with your sign’s signature split personality. And we say, embrace it! Like a fine wine, you are a unique blend with subtle nuances that stand out depending on what you pair them with. And as for your coworkers? They’ll come to respect your exciting duality—whether your conservative or kooky side comes out, you’ll always keep them on their toes.
