History

Once upon a time there was a mountain girl and an ocean boy. The girl spent her days climbing trees, cresting mountains and collecting rocks. The boy spent his days swimming, fishing and collecting tastes and smells… and teaching himself the art of fermentation.

The mountain girl grew into a woman and began a career in geology where she could crest mountains and collect rocks. The ocean boy grew into a sommelier and a garagiste winemaker where he could collect tastes and smells.

But on one fateful day, in a Wine Bar in Monterey, the two did meet…

A twinkle of the eye, a wave of the fingers, a kiss and five short weeks later they were engaged. Adventure was on the horizon and with the sell of what little they owned, they were off.

Embarking on a trip around the globe to smell, taste, climb and of course make wine. In the cellars of New Zealand they built barrel pyramids and on an autumn day in May, they were wed in the Malbec terraces above the sea. Honeymooning through the coasts of Asia, the Isles of Greece and the Alps of Italy they found themselves in the cellars of France. Collecting knowledge, memories, tastes and aromas…

The day came to return home. They landed at midnight in the San Francisco airport, waiting for bags to come popping up the carousal, hands intertwined, penniless and full of passion with the desire to make wine…

The girl turned to the boy and said, “Let’s just start our own winery."

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Luc's Vineyard | Fountaingrove
Planted 2010: Graciano, Syrah, Tempranillo, Grenache
Luc’s vineyard is a single southwest facing hillside acre straddling the border between Santa Rosa and Calistoga. Planted on volcanic soils the vineyard is home to rattlesnakes, large rocks, young olive trees, wild turkeys, medium rocks, mature oak trees, and small rocks. Did I mention the rocks? The Tubbs fire raged through the property on October 9th. The vines and olive trees survived, as did a few of the mature oaks. People and pets escaped. House and structures were turned to ash.

Ceja Farms | Sonoma Valley
Planted 1998: Grenache, Grenache Blanc
Farmed by Jesus Ceja, this vineyard is located in west Sonoma, bordering Carneros (one mile south) and the Sonoma Coast appellation which frames the western side of the vineyard. The soil is sandy loam and extremely rocky, planted on an ancient river bed.

Collier Vineyard | Calistoga
Prohibition Era Old Vines: Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon
A low yielding venerable one-acre vineyard in the heart of Calistoga. These dry-farmed, head pruned vines have been under our care since 2007. We average a mere 0.5 to .75 tons off this acre each year. This site always produces wine which is a pure expression of its surroundings, possessing a 'sense of place' that is undeniable. The vines are planted amid a mix of fig, olive, and walnut trees, and inter-planted with lavender and other wildflowers.

Rock Rose Vineyard | Philo
Planted 2017: Vermentino, Chenin Banc, Graciano, Frappato
Coming soon: Petit Manseng, Saperavi
