These are wines of exceptional quality made in tiny quantities. They are worth seeking out!

"Marilyn and I wanted to produce our own wines for some time, but we wanted to do something special...

... in May of 2001, we finally visited France's Rhone Valley. It was a magical time. The wines we sampled were amazing, like nothing we'd ever tasted. Oh, we had tried these classic varietals before but never with such vibrancy, such depth of character. These vintages were from small vintners who sell every bottle locally to friends and family. We knew then the type of wines we had to try to make.

We hope when you taste our wines you experience the same revelation we did. Please visit us soon..."

We are pleased to announce the opening of our new tasting room in Carmel Valley. We felt that this would allow a more convenient access from Monterey and Carmel for club members to pick up their shipments as well as a way to introduce our wines to people visiting from out of the area. The winery tasting room is still open on weekends and the Carmel Valley tasting room is open Thursday thru Sunday. We hope you will stop by and say hi. The address is 19E Carmel Valley Road in a strip called the East End Wine Row. Cheers!
