New Summer Select Wines with Summer Shipment

Monday, August 15, 2016

The Summer Select Shipment has new wines paired with your new bottle of 239.  You’ll be receiving one of the following additional wines that matches your club choice:

Mixed,  Reds and Red/White/Dessert Clubs will receive a bottle of Cashmere—yes it’s making a long awaited comeback. This blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Petite Verdot and 25% Cabernet franc is a Bordeaux blend has nice soft tannins and mouth feel of bright berry notes.

Dessert Club members will receive Ize T—once again back by popular demand is a blend of Arneis, Gewurztraminer, Riesling juice from frozen grapes, 38 brix before fermentation creates a rich sweet floral yummy flavor.

White Wine Club members will love our winemaker Mike who held back this Riesling from 2014 for the wine club as it ages so beautifully developing daphne flower notes on the nose and a richness on the palette; perfect for the rim fare.


Headshine to play at Kalyra Winery’s Great Grape Stomp Event October 1st, 2016.

Monday, July 18, 2016

Kalyra Winery News Release

Headshine to play at Kalyra Winery’s Great Grape Stomp Event October 1st, 2016.

Santa Ynez, CA July 18, 2016.  The lead band for The Great Grape Stomp at Kalyra Winery has been named.  As a sold-out event every year, this years’ addition of the headline band Headshine is sure to draw an even larger crowd of wine loving, music loving, grape stompers from San Francisco to San Diego and beyond.  

With a touch of reggae and California sunshine, the Huntington Beach singer/songwriter has cultivated a surfer/acoustic sound called Headshine; and it's what happens when something comes alive inside and begins to radiate. One moment you're singing along and the next thing you know you're at a show rockin' a shaker, or crowd surfing with a bunch of good friends. Listen to the music and your head will shine.

Word of mouth kick-started the southern California artist toward the national stage. Headshine has recently opened tour dates for Ziggy Marley, Jamaican reggae-legends The Wailers, Katchafire, Natty Vibes and Sashamon from Hawaii, Al Anderson’s Original Wailers, The English Beat, pop-punk’s Less Than Jake, the national rock band Lit, O.A.R, Ballyhoo, Stick Figure and The Supervillains.

"Headshine realize their dreams with chill, acoustic Cali rock. After being nominated for Best Acoustic Band for the OC Music Awards last year, Headshine embarked on a massive tour around the country which culminated with a show with The Wailers."106.7 KROQ

The Great Grape Stomp includes the opportunity to put your feet down and stomp on the grapes, win fabulous prizes for great costumes, eat a catered meal by Shellfish Catering, drink fabulous Kalyra wines, dance to Headshine’s music and enjoy a real vineyard experience lead by Australian Winemaker Mike Brown.

With a strong conviction of creating food compatible wines and simply not making the same wines as everybody else, the Kalyra wine portfolio is as interesting as it is varied. Winemaker Mike Brown holds true to the new world philosophy that a wine should be a reflection of the grape as well as the unique characteristics of where it is grown.  Kalyra was the featured winery in the Academy Award winning movie “Sideways” starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Sandra Oh.

Tickets are available now via the website: http://www.kalyrawinery.com/Events/index.php#The-Great-Grape-Stomp

To order by phone: 805-693-8864   All tickets will be will-call and can be picked up onsite.  Early tickets sales are encouraged as this events sells out.

Kalyra Winery & New Frontiers Announce the “New Frontiers Documentary Series

Thursday, April 24, 2014

April 18, 2014 – In its third year offering free outdoor movie nights, Kalyra Winery is implementing creative touches to expand and broaden the movie night experience for their guests.

“The movie nights have been so well-received in our community,” said Evie Sweeney, Director of Marketing & Membership for Kalyra Winery, “so we wanted to add some new elements to keep it a fresh and interesting activity.”

The most significant announcement is the New Frontiers Documentary Series, a collaborative partnership between Kalyra Winery and New Frontiers Marketplace. The New Frontiers Documentary Series will be held on the fourth Saturday of every month from May to October, in addition to Kalyra’s regular movie night series, which is held on the second Saturday of each month.

“Documentaries are not as mainstream as Hollywood movies,” said Sweeney, “and we felt it was prudent to find a partner who could help us promote the series out of a common desire to educate ourselves and others. We immediately knew who our first choice would be: New Frontiers. We were excited they felt the same way.”

Like the regular movie nights, this series will be held outdoors, free to the public, and shown on a 20-foot high definition big screen. It will feature award-winning documentaries that offer educational, inspiring true stories of causes, people and animals. New Frontiers will be onsite at each screening, offering scrumptious dinners fare for sale, while Kalyra will be offering wine and popcorn.

“When Kalyra brought up the idea of partnering on a documentary series, it immediately clicked and made total sense,” said Ron Colone, who is helping coordinate the programming and the partnership between Kalyra and New Frontiers. “As Evie pointed out, part of the Mission at New Frontiers is ‘educating ourselves and others.’ But another important component of the New Frontiers Mission is embracing opportunities to improve the quality of life, in our community and our world. Creating a program where people can get together in a beautiful setting, with good food and drink, and high quality, stimulating entertainment is one more thing contributing to quality of life in the Santa Ynez Valley.”

The New Frontiers Documentary Series includes:

More Than Honey – Saturday, May 24

Buck – Saturday, June 28

Dirt! The Movie – Saturday, July 26

The Whale – Saturday, August 23

Tales From the Tavern – Saturday, September 27

Watershed – Saturday, October 25



Admission will continue to be free. Children and leashed dogs are welcome. Doors open at 5pm. Films will begin at dusk. For more information, visit www.KalyraWinery.com.

Kalyra Asks-- Covering the Gamut of Life Questions From Serious to Wacky

Life is one big question mark, isn't it? Kalyra is asking for your participation as it philosophizes life's nagging questions Kalyra-style. The first one is a biggie:

"What is the craziest thing you've ever witnessed at Kalyra?"

We realize we're opening our doors to some out-there stuff, but let's see what you've got! The best answer (and its author) will be featured in the next issue of the newsletter, and will wine two bottles of Kalyra wine. Put on your thinking caps!


Entries for both contests may be emailed to winethieves@KalyraWinery.com by November 1st.


Kalyra Winery Launches Redesigned Website, Newsletter, Facebook Page

Monday, October 03, 2011

You've likely noticed many changes recently to Kalyra as we continue honing our desire to be progressive and fun, while staying firmly planted in our original mission of perpetrating great wine and a great wine community.In that spirit, we are proud to announce a new redesign of KalyraWinery.com, Kalyra's wine club newsletter, and Kalyra's Facebook Page.

KalyraWinery.com will now truly be the hub of information for Kalyra wines, news, contests, events, specials and even recipes. Each section is designed to enhance your experience both as a Kalyra customer and as a wine enthusiast.

Kalyra's newsletter, Wine Thief Tidings, now includes many additional 'pockets' of information especially for our #1 customers: Wine Thieves members. We hope you'll find its new look conveys a sense of energy and enthusiasm we have for the exciting days ahead as Kalyra welcomes its 10th Anniversary year in 2012.

And lastly, Kalyra is fortunate to have a very loyal Facebook following, likely in large part to the face that Kalyra was one of the first wineries to have a Facebook page when Facebook went mainstream. Since that time, Facebook has evolved and Kalyra's new page is a company page set up to simply 'like'. The new Facebook page will be actively maintained with code words, event info and Facebook-only discounts to be had. If you've been a friend of Kalyra's for a while, we hope you'll follow us over!
