All of our pinot noirs are unfiltered and unfined, ensuring the purest expression of the grape. Because pinot noir is such a delicate grape, we do not use pumps; we use 100% gravity during harvest, crush, press, and bottling, to preserve the subtle nuances of the wine. And half of the fermentation bins are done with indigenous yeast.
Note: Minimum order for non-Wine Group members is three bottles or $75. Thank you!
