We have dedicated more than 30 years to exploring the many expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California and Oregon’s finest winegrowing regions:
A diverse landscape, the Willamette Valley is comprised of farmlands, orchards and even Christmas tree farms. Rolling hillsides are capped with vineyards, and historic towns dot the winding country roads.
There’s a renegade spirit to the Anderson Valley. Locals embrace the isolation, a draw for artists, orchardists and the long-time residents who can tell stories about the area’s colorful history. It’s also an ideal location for growing grapes, with cooling maritime influence, dramatic geological contours and rocky soils.
Adjacent to the San Pablo bay, in the foothills of the Mayacamas Range, grapes were first planted here in the 1830s. It was the first of California’s cool regions to be widely recognized for exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal expression.
