Wines With A Sense Of Place

Our wines tell stories and express the unique terroir of our AVA. With every vintage, you'll discover the essence of what Mother Nature has gifted, bottled in the purest form.

Staying faithful to our Garagiste Winemaking roots, we produce a limited annual yield between 1,000 and 1,200 cases. Our portfolio boasts an array of varietals, including Grenache Blanc, Viognier, GSM Rosé, GSM Red Blend, Grenache, Syrah (both as a red wine and a Port style), Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre and a little Zinfandel. Each wine is carefully crafted to express the unique characteristics of the grape, the vintage, and the vineyards from which they are sourced. We invite you to explore our portfolio and experience our low-intervention winemaking style, creating restrained and food-friendly wines.
