About our wines

We have a passion for Pinot; mostly Noir, and Blanc and Gris... Chardonnay has a special place in our vineyards too. This passion started long ago, and it led to pioneering a growing region, planting many acres of vineyards, representing California Pinot Noir across the US and abroad and many, many hours on a tractor.

Our home is on the Santa Rosa Road corridor, in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, where the cool, ocean-influenced growing conditions and clay-based soils help us grow Pinot and Chardonnay with elegantly layered aromatics and refreshing acid profiles.

 

To be more specific

We are on the 34°N parallel, same latitude as Tunisia, and the Sun is intense. Our vineyards are located on North-facing slopes, where the afternoon Sun and its heat are less marked and the grapes, at perfect ripeness can convey floral, fruit and mineral aromas to the wines. Peak temperature on our estate happens around 12:30PM, due to the afternoon maritime onshore winds, much earlier than other Pinot Noir growing regions. Although we reach similar temperature highs, the duration is not as long, fostering the unique wine profiles of the Sta. Rita Hills which we live to capture and share.

2015 Chardonnay, El Jabali
