La Honda’s 2020 Merry Prankster Cabernet is Bottled Psychedelia! Says The PR

The Redwood City winery pays homage to the influential freaks who called the location home in the early ’60s reports Good Times

In 1964, the Merry Pranksters hopped on a carnival-colored, converted school bus with a large supply of LSD in tow. Things would never be the same. Immortalized in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, the Pranksters’ perpetual party was punctuated by brushes with the law and a psychedelic ethos that lives on: “embrace life, express yourself and break some damned rules.”

These words appear on La Honda Winery’s label for the upbeat 2020 Merry Pranksters Cab. Talk about an eye-catching bottle of wine—ideal for those looking for the ideal April Fool’s Day red wine. Plus, you can’t beat the $16 price tag.

The grapes are hand-farmed, and the wine is handmade. It has some distinctive black currant, tobacco, coffee and mint notes with dark fruit flavors of blueberries and black plums.

La Honda Winery, a Wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains member (, boasts a beautiful property often called a “best-kept secret.” You might even feel the lively spirit of Neal Cassady bouncing around.
