vineyard partners

We do not own vineyards. We source grapes from small, family-owned growers.

Each vineyard we work with is farmed with intention and uses sustainable practices to maintain the ecosystem in which we all reside, allowing us to produce wines that represent each individual site and terroir.

Mill Station vineyard

Chardonnay | Sonoma Coast

  • 11 miles from the ocean
  • 132ft above sea level
  • Soil: Goldridge Loam
  • Certified Fish Friendly

Mill Station Vineyard was planted by the Dutton Family in 1975 and is completely dry-farmed. Situated in the cool hills of Green Valley outside of the town of Sebastopol, Mill Station is below the fog line and routinely pushes harvest dates into mid-October. The old vines yield impeccably balanced fruit that allows us to leave the fruit on the vine longer while maintaining lower sugars and the racy acidity we love.

Azaya vineyard

Pinot Noir | Petaluma Gap

  • 9 miles from the ocean
  • 420ft above sea level
  • Soil: Blucher Loam
  • Certified Organic, CCOF

Azaya Vineyard is a stunner. Located in Western Marin County, this cold site sits on a sloped, south facing hillside and is on the brink of where you can ripen wine grapes. Meticulously farmed by hand and certified organic, Azaya yields crunchy, high-toned Pinot Noir as it endures the cool Pacific fog, winds, and low temperatures throughout the growing season.

McEvoy Ranch vineyard

Syrah | Petaluma Gap

  • 12 miles from the ocean
  • 540ft above sea level 
  • Soil: Tocaloma Loam
  • Certified Organic, CCOF

The source of our inaugural 2017 vintage, McEvoy Ranch Vineyard is perched on an exposed hilltop surrounded by olive groves in Western Marin County. This site is rocky and extremely well drained. The Syrah planted here works hard as it battles the coastal fog, high winds, and cool temperatures. These factors yield a savory and restrained Syrah that reminds us of Saint Joseph.
