Our 6th release of Vermentino (also known as Rolle in Southern France.) This 7 barrel, 175 case lot was fermented and aged in 50% stainless steel, and 50% neutral barrel for 6 months. Fresh and gulpable, mouthwatering acidity, and weighty texture that belies its low 11.5% alcohol. Organically farmed, no additions save a small amount of sulfur.

Our 2019 vintage was featured in April 2020 in the San Francisco Chronicle by Esther Mobley and in September 2020 by Michelle Williams in Forbes as one of the "Six Reasons To Fall In Love With Vermentino".

We are honored to offer you this special wine, in tribute to Saralee Kunde, who left us in 2014. Saralee was an unparalleled leader and heroine in Sonoma County agriculture, and a personal inspiration. Catie's Corner is named for her daughter.  This vineyard was the first planting in the Russian  River, made possible by Saralee's commitment to varietal diversity.

This tiny lot of Viognier is inspired by the Northern Rhone. Bright, vibrant, textural, with fresh acidity, without the overly floral aspects of (too) many California Viognier. Previous vintage described as “a prototype for how to get the grape right in CA” by SF Chronicle Wine Writer Jon Bonné. 35 cases made.

From a 75 year old vineyard, head trained, dry farmed, certified organic. Elegant and aromatic, juicy and easy drinking, with soft structure from 50% whole cluster, perhaps more akin to Cru Beaujolais than Carignan.     

A great winter red for pairing with ribs, stews, or simply by the fire with Netflix or a book.  12.2% alc

 From the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi,  the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.

Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 10 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called an example of “delightful, delicious wine from under-appreciated grapes." 

Unfortunately only 1.5 barrels, 30 cases crafted in 2016.

This syrah is a one off, single barrel lot. Owned by our friend down the street, we picked a 1/2 ton just because....

It's quite pretty and light, with notes of blueberry, white pepper, a great every day drinking wine, for those who like the more delicate side of syrah.  Only 25 cases made.
