Just 65 miles north of our winery in Sebastopol, CA is a parcel of land with raw, rustic character, and potential that we have only begun to tap into. It is here, in Anderson Valley, where our journey to find world-class Pinot Noir brought us in 2016.
When visiting Cerise, one can feel the dichotomy of the land. Tameless and wild, but nonetheless beautiful. The terrain is unrelenting, with slopes as steep as 30% ranging from 700ft to 1,700 ft elevation. Pinot Noir blocks sit on the eastern side of the valley, facing west, 16 miles from the coast. There is not a single block on flat ground.
This unparalleled location has had a history of producing world-class wines and we are thrilled now be stewards of this ranch and tell its story across future vintages. As the years progress, we will continue to pursue wines that speak of their sense of place and invite you to join us on this exciting journey.
