Description

We are a true garagiste winery in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Founded in 2000 by Stew Lauterbach and his wife Barbara Swary, we have been growing and making award winning wines in our garage since 2003. We purchased our land in 1992, planted pinot noir in 1996 and Syrah in 1998. Our first commercial Pinot Noir and Syrah was in 2000, produced for us at another winery. In 2003, we moved production to our garage where we have been making our wines ever since.
