About Cartan Vineyard
Jim and Nancy live on the property. Jimís wife, Nancy, is a teacher in Santa Rosa. Jim Cartan comes from farm roots. His father managed a huge ranch in Monterrey County for many, many years. Jim himself has worked as a wine broker for Turrentine before turning to general management of the farm his dad worked. Jim does most of the tractor work on the Cartan Vineyard, has a regular vineyard worker for many years, and uses the same harvest crew as do we (Rogelio Palaciosí crew). Jim and we have traded equipment between each other and a common friend for some years. In 2011, we were able to get a small amount of fruit from Jim and in 2012 we were able to contract for all of it. The Cartan Chardonnay we hope will form the core of our Russian River Chardonnay, and the Cartan Pinot an important part of our portfolio going forward.
