Claypool Cellars

Our Glorious Story As I tiptoe through the entertainment industry, dabbling in mediums beyond the microphone and my four-stringed piece of electric furniture, I once again find myself venturing into a new foray.

Whether cabernet sauvignon, merlot or chardonnay, these wines are a toast to a spirited woman of remarkable grace.
