Today, we are incredibly excited to offer the biggest single collection of SQN we’ve ever seen, including several perfect 100-point-scoring-wines from this trailblazing producer.

Producing what Robert Parker calls, “the elixirs of dreams”, Sine Qua Non is the ultimate garage winery success story, crafting some of the world’s most collectable cuvees year after year.

Founder Manfred Krankl emigrated from Austria to the U.S where he opened the finest artisanal bakery in Los Angeles, La Brea Bakery, as well as one of the area’s top Mediterranean-styled restaurants, Campania. In 1994 Krankl, and his wife Elaine decided to turn their focus and dedication to wine and purchased fruit from three leading California vineyards – Alban, Stolpman, and Bien Nacido.

From their Mad-Max-style-junkyard-of-a-winery in the back-streets of Ventura they produced 100-cases of their maiden vintage, The Queen Of Spades. This predominantly Syrah-based wine was the first in what would become a world-renowned and highly sought-after list of wines, primarily produced from the Syrah or Grenache varietals.

The winery has now outgrown its humble beginnings, moving to a purpose-built facility on one of Krankl’s four estates, however, his eccentric and brilliant approach to wine-making remains. Typified by very low yields, usually no two vintages are named the same, and each year the shape of the bottle changes along with the label, which Krankl designs himself. Whilst this variety can be confusing, the unique nature of these wines is key and is one of the fundamental reasons why these wines are amongst the most collectable in the world.

These wines are only released to their mailing-list customers and there is currently a 9-year wait to join the list. This is a great opportunity to secure these wines now for delivery towards the end of the year.
