             Our Wines

Pinot Noir
Our Pinot Noir is fermented in small one-ton lots.  
Punch down is by hand twice daily and
temperatures are closely watched.  Malolactic
fermentation is induced as primary fermentation
ends and the lightly pressed wine goes into
French oak barrels for about one year.  Very little
or no fining or filtration is used.  All racking is
done by gravity.

Pinot Meunier
Our Pinot Meunier is made in the same way as
our Pinot Noir.  It is fermented in small one ton
lots.  Punch down is by hand twice daily and
temperatures are closely watched.  Malolactic
fermentation is induced as primary fermentation
ends and the lightly pressed wine goes into
French oak barrels for about one year.  Very little
or no fining or filtration is used.  All racking is
done by gravity.

Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay is crushed and pressed, then
settled and fermented in stainless steel.  A clean
neutral yeast is used and a malolactic ferment is
induced.  Bottled in the late summer after a light
filtration, it is released in the fall.

Rosé of Pinot Noir
Our dry Rosé is produced by stemming and
lightly crushing estate grown Pinot Noir grapes,
adding yeast and malolactic culture and leaving
the juice in contact with the skins for 24 hours or
until the desired color is achieved.  We then press
out and continue the fermentation in stainless
steel.  The wine is lightly filtered if needed,
bottled and ready for an early summer release.

Sparkling Wine
Our Sparkling Wine is a blend of whole cluster
pressed Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with
crushed and pressed Chardonnay which has been
fermented separately in stainless steel and
blended to make our cuvee.  Secondary  
fermentation in each bottle is followed by hand
riddling and disgorging, using traditional Methodé
Champenoise techniques.
