Big House Winery in Soledad, CA (Monterey County) is a mere ankle iron’s toss from the Soledad State Correctional Facility, a.k.a. “the Big House,” “The Clink,” “The Slammer,” which explains the recurring prison theme depicted on the labels. The brand’s cornerstone is a rebellious New World winemaking style blending Mediterranean varieties. Big House wines unshackle consumers from ball and chain wine choices and rules, creating criminally exhilarating everyday wines.
Founded in 1981, The Wine Group LLC produces and distributes wine in the United States. The Wine Group produces a variety of wines sold under the Franzia, Corbett Canyon, Mogen David, Tribuno, and Lejon labels.
