Pinot Noir & Chardonnay From The Sonoma Coast

Our limited production wines by mother-and-daughter duo Rickey Trombetta Stancliff and Erica Stancliff hail from the region of Sonoma referred to as the Petaluma Gap.

We select clones of Pinot Noir that exemplify the rich minerality, soils and cool weather of the Sonoma Coast, resulting in a beautifully balanced wine, enhancing every meal.

Each and every bottle has been hand-harvested, fermented with native yeast, and allowed to develop with native malolactic fermentation in barrels.

Lower than average fruit meant extra vigilance in the vineyard in order to determine the perfect harvest date.
