Adrian Fog was born from the idea that Pinot Noir should have a sense of place and that the vineyard is the birthplace of great wine. All of our vineyards are selected for their individuality. By hand selecting cool climate fruit from small vineyards, Adrian Fog is able to maintain the unique signature and personality of the vineyard. Each vineyard is selected by considering the effect of coastal fog patterns, clonal differences, age and vine orientation to the sun. Picking, fermentation and barrel ageing are done by keeping all clones and blocks separate. By this madness, we are able to learn and appreciate each wine's nuances and style intimately. Our bottlings are determined by the wine's individuality, our largest bottling is 330 cases and the smallest is 23 cases. Picking, racking, and bottling are scheduled as close to the night of the full moon as possible. We have found that she (Adrian Fog) likes and enjoys the effects of the lunar cycle. We encourage you to drink Adrian Fog on the night of a full moon to enjoy her full seductive essence.
Our private tastings are by appointment only; small groups of 6 or less are preferred. All tastings are private and hosted by Owner Winemaker Stewart Dorman. Three to four of our highly sought after Pinot Noirs and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons will be opened in advance for tasting. The $25.00 per person tasting fee will be waived if wine is purchased per person per bottle.
