All of our grapes come from the Farm; this beautiful piece of land that straddles the Russian River, neighbors the Mendocino National Forest and sits 1,200 feet in altitude. But we just call it home.
Our Dad, Guinness, planted the first vines here in 1970 and went on to raise us kids alongside highly sought-after grapes. Today, we proudly carry on the family tradition while representing our small valley across the country.
Since we live here on the property, farming organically means we can raise kids, hike in the hills and swim in the river without cause for concern. Turns out, it also means we can produce world-class wines.
The Wine Story
A short history of our grapes
From our Farm to your Home
Tucked into the Northwest corner of Potter Valley, in beautiful Mendocino County, all of our grapes are estate-grown and organic. We use different farming techniques across our seven varieties to enhance their individual characteristics and terroir. Once harvested, we whole cluster press and then cold ferment in stainless steel, which results in award-winning wines, true to the varietal character. We hope you’ll get to know all of our wines and enjoy them with good food and great company.
