At Maggy Hawk, our purpose is to craft exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We take inspiration from the beauty of our Anderson Valley estate vineyards while continuing to seek out cool-climate sites. We focus on the purity of the grape, and the natural elegance found within.
The northern half of Anderson Valley – what locals call The Deep End – is typically shrouded in a thick fog that rolls in from the nearby Mendocino coastline. Here, our Maggy Hawk Vineyard, Skycrest Vineyard and Edmeades Vineyard are tucked away among the valley’s rolling hillsides, surrounded by redwoods. We take inspiration from this beautiful cool climate region and seek out others, such as the Dundee Hills in the Willamette Valley. The diversity of our vineyards gives our winemaking team a wealth of characteristics to layer into the Maggy Hawk wines. Each has its own style and story to tell. Together, they offer a unique view of this remote region.
Winemaker Tony Rynders crafts every wine to be unique and compelling in its own right, but also to contribute something meaningful to the Maggy Hawk story as a whole. Tony enjoys seeking out those hidden pockets of cool-climate vineyards on the frontier where he can express the beauty of the land. He has developed a masterful touch for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from his many years working in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and his expertise continues with the wines of Maggy Hawk today.
