In 2000 we produced only 30 cases of Chardonnay and 50 cases of Pinot Noir, extremely limited production releases that have aged into remarkably complex & mature wines. We continue to vinify small lots of grapes chosen from ideal sites throughout the Central Coast with great success. Our micro-production gives us a high level of quality control, resulting in wines to withstand the test of time. Techniques such as sur lees aging, whole cluster fermentation, various yeast blends, extended fermentations, & long aging in French Oak create truly unique wines for the connoisseur. We typically store our wine in oak longer than other producers, and release the vintages about 1 year later than other Pinot producers. Though our emphasis is on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, we have released limited production of other varietals that have captured our interest.
