Winemaking is an art form to us. We are curious about our terrior here in Monterey. The vineyard sites, varietals, climate and soil types are vast and diverse. Transparency dictates our actions in the cellar with a common goal of letting the land and the grapes express themselves in the purest form possible. In the heart of Steinbeck Country, we produce and bottle all of our wines at our own facility in the rual farm town of Salinas California. We attempt to create wines that showcase balance, finesse and focus.
We harvest at moderate ripeness levels suited to the vineyard site and varietal in an attempt to capture the energy and tension of the specific varietal. Almost all elevage for our wines take place in neutral vessels allowing the transparency of the vineyard and grape varietal to shine. Our cellar practices are minimal and we attempt to gently guide our wines so that they show their true selves.
