Bigger is better!
Our 2017 magnums are now available, with shipping included


We're excited to share our magnums from the beautifully balanced and age-worthy 2017 vintage. The wet winter got the vines off to a healthy start, then the generally cool summer and warm harvest season gave us strong vines and canopies, and a long hang time. The wines showcase Dan's winemaking style perfectly: purity of fruit with a strong reflection of each individual single-vineyard site. These wines are delicious now, and will also age gracefully for at least a decade. We produce only a limited number of bottles of magnums each year, so supplies are limited.

Orders 3 or more magnums and receive UPS Ground shipping included!

The fast and furious harvest continues

It has been quite the non-stop harvest this year. Usually, we start in early September, then have a bit of a slower time until about the third week, when we pick up again and continue through October. This year, we've been going full-tilt since we began on August 27. Yesterday we brought in our Putnam Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast that's pictured here. That leaves us with just a few vineyards still waiting to be picked, including the typically last-in-line sites of Devil's Gulch and Docker Hill. As of now, all our remaining vineyards are on the schedule to come in over the next week, meaning we could be wrapped up by the end of September—whew! No wonder they're so tired over at production.
