Dear Friends,

It is a momentous time for LUTUM in which we announce that our partnership in the winery is transitioning to a close. The past few years have been a tremendous journey, and we truly appreciate the great interest in our wines and the amazing critical acclaim that they’ve consistently received.  It’s meaningful to us both that our partnership and wines were appreciated by so many — including ourselves!

We’ve enjoyed our endeavor immensely and have reached a time where we’ve both decided that our attention is best spent focusing on our own eponymous brands — Bill with Three Sticks Wines and Gavin with Chanin Wine Co.  As LUTUM was a collaboration featuring our favorite vineyards, you will see the same vineyard designates that you enjoyed with LUTUM between our two projects.

We invite you to join us in our other exciting adventures.  To sign up for the Chanin and Three Sticks mailing lists please visit our websites:  (Gavin’s wines from Sta. Rita Hills, and more)  (Bill’s wines from Price Family Vineyards: Durell and Gap’s Crown Vineyards)

We wish you all the best on your wine journeys!

Bill Price and Gavin Chanin


If you’re interested in acquiring some of our remaining wines, we have partnered with online retailer Last Bottle to offer our final inventory at special prices over the coming months.  You can sign up here for their list to receive their deal of the day, which may be for LUTUM, or for another interesting wine.
