Wines

    Our winemaker Jacob Toft and I have long been  devotees of the wines from the Rhône Valley in France. Whites, Reds, Rosés; Côte Rotie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Bandol—all of it. It is our and other’s belief that Paso Robles has a marvelous climate and soils in which to grow the great Rhone Varieties: Syrah, Grenach, Mourvedre, Viognier, Roussanne,  and more.

    Our production is very limited with some lots as small as a few dozen cases. 2009 was our first "full" vintage.
