Dark Horse is possible because of the unstoppable visionaries who pour everything into creating these shockingly good wines. Based in Modesto, CA, this tireless team has taken Dark Horse from complete unknown to a real contender.

Leading the charge is Beth Liston, a winemaker crazy enough to believe that with the right planning and technique, a reasonably priced wine could actually be ridiculously good. Pretty bold if you think about it. For more information, please visit

La Marca Prosecco is a sparkling wine made in the Trevisio area of Northern Italy from the Prosecco grape. Prosecco is characterized by light and delicate fruit and floral aromatics, relatively low alcohol levels, and a friendly mouthfeel. Prosecco is best consumed soon after production while it still retains its youthful fruitiness and stimulating acidity. La Marca Prosecco, produced by a winegrower cooperative founded more than 40 years ago, brings top quality at a friendly price. To learn more about La Marca, visit their website at .
