At the heart of our philosophy is a belief that wines should express their distinctive areas of origin — the environment in which the grapes thrive. The extreme Sonoma Cost is a beautiful place of unique character with the Pacific Ocean less than two miles from the vineyards, generating cooling sea breezes and coastal fog, while the soaring elevations ensure abundant sunshine for a long, slow growing season. Together they create an ideal environment for elegant and nuanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
“By farming our sites on the extreme Sonoma Coast using sustainable, organic and biodynamic practices, we work with the elements, rather than control them. This means that every vintage is an opportunity to deepen our knowledge of the soil, the vines and the historic land that we farm.”
— Chantal Forthun, Winemaker
Although our two estate vineyards on the extreme Sonoma Coast both sit at high elevation and are under one mile apart, they display remarkably different profiles. Each bottling captures the hallmarks of the far west Sonoma Coast’s extreme environment while having its own unique identity. We invite you to taste these wines side-by-side and discover their nuances for yourself.
