We are excited to introduce the fifth year of the Santa Clara University Mission Wine Collection. We’ve selected three distinguished wineries with SCU alumni connections for this year’s release.
New this year, we are offering olive oil to either accompany the wine and/or enjoy on its own. This new selection comes from an SCU alumni owned olive mill along with a custom label. Proceeds from the wine and olive oil will support the Alumni Family Scholarship program, which helps legacy students attend the University.

Perrucci Family Vineyard is a true boutique winery with limited annual production. This limit is self imposed to ensure the highest quality product and experience for the customer. In many ways, passion comes before profit. The Perrucci family is committed to crafting quality wines that are fairly priced and a pleasure to drink. Employing the latest agricultural practices in the vineyards and using only the very best grapes they can produce, the Perrucci Family is “hands on" involved in all aspects of the wine, from vineyard to harvest to crushing to bottling to aging and selling.

“By Insiders, For Insiders”, Punch's 10th release. Made by wine veteran Lee Nordlund, SCU'80, and up-and-coming winemaker Miguel Caratachea, who (for other wineries) has already amassed 27 wines scoring 90+ in Wine Spectator (4 were 94+) and 24 with 90+ in Parker’s Wine Advocate (10 were 94+). A rogue Napa Valley escapade, Punch has no vineyards, no chateau, and no riches to burn. But it has "cracked the code" using friendly connections to Napa Valley’s top vineyard owners, one of Napa Valley’s cleverest winemakers, and rampant imprudence in pursuit of idyllic wines.
