In the summer of 2001, standing alone amidst the oldest of our grapevines, feeling a deep connection to the land and to the past, I decided to start my own winery. I was working that morning in our original five rows of Pinot Noir, when it hit me that this work would not be truly satisfying unless I could eventually make my own wine from this fruit. It was my belief that we could craft a spectacular wine in very small quantities while still producing exceptional fruit for our winery clients. This is the continuing story of building our winery from the vineyard up. Our thoughts, our goals, our decisions, the good days and bad days. Enjoy.
