Our Wine Philosophy

We are focused on preserving both varietal character and regional accuracy in all of our wines. Our winemaking regime has evolved to emphasize the inherent freshness, balance and structure of our fruit. After harvest, the white grapes are gently pressed, fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to ensure freshness, bright aromatics, lush textures and balance. For Pinot Noir we use a combination of traditional and modern methods to emphasize both flavour and elegance. Our Pinot Noir is aged exclusively in French oak.
