Where The Wines Come From


Mendocino County, located in Northern California, has become a stronghold for natural winemaking, thanks to its diverse terroir and commitment to sustainable agriculture. Situated north of Sonoma County, Mendocino's rugged coastal landscape and diverse microclimates create an ideal environment for organic and biodynamic farming practices. Natural winemakers in Mendocino prioritize minimal intervention, eschewing chemical additives and pesticides in favor of holistic vineyard management and natural fermentation techniques. The region's signature grape varieties, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel, thrive in this environment, producing wines that showcase the purity of the fruit and the unique character of Mendocino's terroir. Mendocino's natural wines are known for their elegance, complexity, and balance, with Pinot Noir offering bright red fruit flavors, Chardonnay presenting crisp acidity and minerality, and Zinfandel displaying rich, spicy notes. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Mendocino remains a leading destination for natural wine enthusiasts, offering a taste of its pristine landscapes and artisanal winemaking practices with every bottle.
