Wines with a sense of place. People with a sense of purpose.
We’ve been called wilderness winemakers, purists in our craft, and downright crazy for planting such temperamental grapes in our harsh environment. For nearly 30 years we’ve been growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the rugged Sonoma Coast. It’s a challenge, but we think great things rarely come easy. Through all that time our goal has stayed the same — make exceptional wines with balance, elegance, and respect for the land. We believe nature knows best and that the less we interfere, the more the authentic voice of the land is allowed to emerge. We look at ourselves as facilitators, not manipulators. So we step back and let Mother Nature do what she does best — a mix of biodynamic and organic farming in the vineyard for healthy soil; and minimal intervention in the cellar to showcase the purity of the fruit and the beauty of the land.
