27 E. Napa St. Suite A
Sonoma, CA 95476

We are a small but mighty family run winery based in Sonoma, CA.

For the last five years we have sold our wine through our wine club and proudly to premier restaurants in the Bay Area including The French Laundry, Single Thread, Atelier Crenn, Saison, and other wonderful, intentional locations.

Our tasting experience revolves around the passion, integrity, and transparency that guides everything we do.

While we may not tell you what flavors you should be tasting, we will share pertinent information about who grows the grapes, how they farm their land, how we make the wine and what we do and mostly don’t do in the winery, and why we believe our wines are important vehicles of connection: connection to us, our family, our growers, and most importantly, Mother Nature.

All wines are made in a minimal-intervention style with some falling in the natural category. The wines are transparent reflections of the places they are grown and of the people who farm them. We source our grapes from small, family owned regenerative, organic, and sustainably farmed sites from the Sonoma Coast, Mendocino Ridge, Marin County, and the Santa Cruz Mountains.

We look forward to hosting you.
