Our Santa Cruz Mountain Estate vineyard was planted in 2000 on a steep, windswept hillside where French immigrants first grew wine grapes a 100 years ago. We are passionately dedicated to our vineyards, farm organically and keep yields very low. Our mission is to create wines that reveal the complex nuances of the vineyards that inspire them - cool climate, ocean-influenced, mountain vineyards. We strive for a transparent expression of place with Pinot Noir, Grenache, Syrah, Roussanne and Chardonnay wines that originate from single vineyard sources. We include Mourvedre, Carignane and Cabernet Sauvignon in some of our blends. Every wine we produce is hand crafted in small lots (less than 1.5 tons) with whole berry and whole cluster fermentations using only native yeast then barrel aged in the French oak barrels without racking before finally bottling without fining or filtration.
