Our highest expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are anchored with two farming families—TheBacigalupis, with their historic Russian River Chardonnay vineyard, and the Karrens, from the rising powerhouse Terra de Promissio Pinot Noir vineyard in Petaluma.
While top-notch, single-vineyard sites make consequential wines, they usually come with consequential pricetags. So…. for our Gravenstein Highway Pinot Sonoma Coast Chard, and Napa Cabernet bottlings, we work from several sources to produce blends that maintain the stylistic and qualitative consistency from premium appellations at appealing prices.
Combining advantages of site-specific winemaking for our prestige-bottlings and micro-negociant blending for our work-horse bottlings, we are afforded the resources to produce wines that significantly over-deliver in quality and expression.
