About Mindego Ridge Vineyard
Our mission is to craft artisan quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our family-farmed vineyard that is our home. Daily attention to the vines enhances their well-being, as well as ours. Wines are made in small lots - hand sorted, native yeast fermentation, hand punch-downs, no fining, no filtration. This,in concert with soil, sun and rain, produces an authentic expression of the wine and vineyard.
