Our Old-World Approach

Our mission is to create New World wines with Old World soul—wines that reveal the complex nuances of our vineyards.

We farm organically and practice minimal-intervention winemaking with the goal of producing wines that transparently and authentically express site and variety.

From gentle foot-treading to indigenous malolactic fermentation in barrel, our wines are handcrafted according to a minimalist, time-honored practice.

We utilize traditional tools like whole-cluster fermentation rather than relying upon modern additions like commercial yeasts, and our use of SO2 is extremely sparing.

Because we believe that winemaking begins in the vineyard, we are deeply committed to fastidious organic viticultural practices.

In the cellar, our philosophy is to honor the characteristics of each vintage, vineyard and varietal—and in doing so, honor Mother Nature.

We favor a subtle oak influence in our reds and sur lie aging. We avoid fining and filtering whenever possible. By keeping our production small, we can give every vine, fermentation bin and barrel the attention it deserves. The result: aromatic, ethereal wines of intensity and elegance.
