We are explorers of the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, and other appellations that stir our curiosity and imagination.  Because our passion is Pinot Noir, it is fitting that our heart is nestled in Western Sonoma County, but we are also interested in discoveries from other regions.  We invite you to share these discoveries through our wines.


Russian River The Russian River Valley is our home.

The heart of our winemaking program, the Russian River Valley is just 60 miles north of San Francisco.  Graced by old growth Redwood forests and beautiful river vistas, this 96,000 acre appellation is the truly is one of the most majestic places on earth.  The breathtaking topography was created millions of years ago in cataclysmic collisions of tectonic plates and volcanic eruptions that spewed ash over bedrock, leading to the formation of Goldridge soil, the perfect medium for growing Pinot Noir.  Fog and wind from the Pacific Ocean flows through the Petaluma Gap, bringing maritime influences to soil and vine alike.


Sonoma Coast The most stunning beauty.

Enigmatic, windswept and wild, the Sonoma Coast appellation is like no other in the world.  The appellation comprises 500,000 acres and lies along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, extending from the San Pablo Bay to the border of Mendocino County.  It is often foggy and damp, and yields are very low.  But the result of that struggle is a priceless bounty for those who persevere: wines that are interesting, elegant, rare, and most of all, delicious.

Other Appellations Always searching for the perfect vineyards.

Traversing other sites throughout California looking for those vineyards that speak to us and draw us in, we pledge to craft wines that uniquely express their terroir, their story of place.  Our goal is to assemble a bespoke collection of vineyards and wines that bring out the adventurer in you.

Winemaking How do you bring a feeling to life?

A winemaker’s quest is really quite simple: listen closely to the vineyard’s message and then express that in the glass.  On a practical level, this means spending time walking through the vines, paying attention to the surroundings, and connecting to how it all makes one feel. In this way, the winemaker becomes intimately familiar with the site, and thus is able to honestly speak for it.  The age-old adage “great wines are made in the vineyard” are our words of wisdom.
