Our journey began with a love of wine and an appreciation of the sites that create great wines. The early 1990’s were an exciting time in Northern California as wine quality exploded higher in both Sonoma and Napa. My love for the wines being grown in Sonoma County led me to purchase forty acres in Bennett Valley in 1999. We planted our first vines in 2001 and made our first barrel of wine in 2004. In 2005 we had our first commercial release of 150 cases of Cabernet. We added Syrah in 2006, our first Chardonnay in 2007, and Pinot Noir in 2011. Starting with the 2014 vintage, we introduced vineyard designated wines from top sites in the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast. Vineyard sources now include Platt Vineyard, Ritchie Vineyard and Bacigalupi Vineyard for Chardonnay, and Platt and Gap's View for Pinot Noir. In 2018, we are adding a Ritchie Vineyard Pinot Noir.
We source from the top vineyard sites in Sonoma County, farm for balanced, healthy vineyards, and produce wines made with integrity that reflect the distinctiveness of their site. Our mission is to make great wines from the best vineyards in Sonoma County.
