Wine Recall for Glass Pieces

Posted on May 26, 2018 by


Seavin Incorporated (“Seavin”), doing business as Lakeridge Winery and Vineyards and also as San Sebastian Winery, announced a recall of select packages containing 750 milliliter glass bottles of its Lakeridge and San Sebastian wines which may contain small grains or bits of glass. This recall applies to only certain Date codes of Lakeridge Winery Southern Red, Southern White, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and San Sebastian Winery Vintners Red and Vintners White.

The recall comes after the third-party manufacturer of Seavin’s wine bottles, our bottle manufacturers, concluded testing related to its production methods. That testing focused on a manufacturing defect impacting glass bottles utilized by Seavin in certain Lakeridge and San Sebastian production runs.

A representative of our bottle manufacturers involved in the investigation of the defective bottles indicated to Seavin that the number of bottles from its plant actually containing pieces of glass is numerically insignificant, and that the risk to the public is extremely small.

Any consumers who currently have potentially-affected Lakeridge or San Sebastian wine within the scope of this recall will be eligible for reimbursement or replacement.

If you believe you have Lakeridge or San Sebastian products impacted by this recall, please compare your code dates to those listed below.

Wine Bottle Date Code Location

Due to the nature of the dark bottles the information shown in the photo can be difficult to read. It is very helpful to hold the bottle in very bright light such as direct sun light. The information will be found on the bottom 1” of the bottle and will appear in the exact format that you see in this image.

Wine Case Date Code Location

The code date on the outside of the case is much easier to read and can be found above or below the box label. If the label is no longer in place simply look at all four sides of the box and it will appear on one of the sides.

You Have a Matching Code Date
If you have any of our products with a code date that matches any of those in the list above then DO NOT consume this wine under any circumstances. We recommended the wine be marked as such, and stored in such a way that others do not mistakenly consume the product.
