Healdsburg’s Share a Splash Wine Company captures the simple philosophy that wine, like life, is best enjoyed when shared. It should make you smile. This is a modern, fresh collection of wines with labels you’ll look for: Cannonball, Angels & Cowboys, High Dive. These wines offer true quality at an everyday price. The project’s ambitious co-founders are Yoav Gilat and master winemaker Dennis Hill.
This diverse portfolio all began with a quest to do one thing and do it well: to produce California Cabernet Sauvignon at an everyday price that tastes like a much more expensive wine. The result? Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from top vineyards in Alexander Valley, Mendocino County, and Napa Valley, which allowed them to do just that. After three vintages producing only Cabernet Sauvignon, Cannonball tackled Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc, also made from premium fruit. It’s a roster of seriously high-value wines.
Angels & Cowboys is a collaboration that brings together Yoav, Dennis, and Northern California graphic artist, Michael Schwab. Their vision was to create a wine that indulges the lover, the trailblazer, and the rulebreaker in all of us. Angels & Cowboys rosé and red are hand-crafted proprietary blends with intriguing, soulful design.
A decade after the launch of the first Cannonball wine, Share a Splash is pushing into the luxury market with the Napa Valley-sourced High Dive label: serious wine without pretension. High Dive is about setting goals and surpassing them. Yoav has collaborated with winemakers Peter Heitz and Scott Palazzo on the first vintage. So far, it’s a hit: their first customer was the esteemed restaurant The French Laundry!
