The brand new releases advance My Favourite Neighbor’s ardour for delivering cult-quality wines with out the limitations of value and pretension.

A Motion of Many
My Favourite Neighbor Cabernet Sauvignon was first made as an homage to Jensen’s neighbor and mentor, Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure Vineyard. Every time Asseo referred to as Jensen, he would seek advice from himself as Jensen’s “favourite neighbor” in his thick French accent. The title was a self-fulfilling prophecy and Jensen crafted the wine to honor Asseo and his Bordeaux roots.
My Favourite Neighbor has since grown right into a motion of many, with fruit coming from notable websites similar to Denner, Alta Colina and Moonsprings–all grown to Jensen’s exacting requirements. The wines are made at Booker’s solar-powered vineyard with out concentrates and different widespread manipulations.
As Jensen famous, “I challenged our workforce and our grower associates, ‘Why can’t we do it proper, with full integrity within the winery and with out concentrates within the cellar? Why can’t we make wines that stand shoulder to shoulder with these which might be twice the worth?’ My Favourite Neighbor is all about creating world-class wines with out shortcuts or compromises.”
