About

Background:
Lionheart Wines is look for capital to fund the expansion of our production capabilities.  This is the next step in the evolution of Lionheart Wines! 

Leon Glover, the winemaker and owner of Lionheart Wines, became very excited about making wine and developing a wine label focused on wine made to complement food and good times with friends and family. He studied the theortical side of wine production as well as became a cellar rat at Crushpad to get hands on experience making wine.  He was very lucky to be able to work with some of the best vineyards all over California as well as working with 12 different varietals in a wide range of production techniques.  Wines produced today have won many gold medals and typically score very well with reviewers (many over 90 points!) 

2012 Harvest:
We need to purchase macro bins (for grapes), fermentation vessels, stainless steel barrels for rose and white wines,  and other assorted items needed for production of high quality wines.  We would like to produce another vintage of the Angel's Blush Rose as well as some Pinot Noir.  The Rose will require stainless steel tanks and barrels to do the slow, cold fermentation to keep the lovely aromas and flavors in the Rose.  The previous Angel's Blush (tm) was made from Syrah and Sangiovese -- only in California could you get a blend like that!  The Angel's Blush was amazing chilled by itself or with a salad or fish.

We need to get the capital shortly in order to make the needed purchases for the 2012 harvest.  If you would like to help Lionheart Wines take the next step in its growth as a wine label, please donate to help us!  Your generousity will be greatly appreciated and not forgotten!

We want your feedback!  If you none of the listed rewards interest you, please send your suggestions to Leon Glover (lglover@lionheartwines.com).  The rules of Kickstarter.com do not allow us to include wine as part of the rewards.  Otherwise, we would most certainly be offering up some of our current excellent wines and the Rose that we want to be producing!
