Austin Hope WineryAustin Hope Winery

Austin Hope has a simple goal: to make spectacular, estate grown Syrah and Grenache. Aiming that high requires a dedication to quality at every step in the winemaking process. From the care taken in planting the Hope Family Vineyard, to the choice of coopers for barrels. That goal is more than a marketing slogan: it flows directly from the natural advantages of a perfect growing location in the Templeton Gap district of Paso Robles; the intense, flavorful fruit that comes from hand-farming the vineyard; and the skills of a highly talented winemaking hand overseeing it all.

Chateau d’EsclansChâteau d’Esclans

Château d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The primary grape grown on the property is Grenache followed by Vermentino. Other grapes include Cinsault, Merlot, Mouvèrdre, Syrah, and Tibouren. The château is known for its old Grenache vines which produce grapes that offer greater concentration of flavor than do the younger vines. As the elevation to where the lots are situated increases, so do the age of the vines. At the highest elevated lot vines are as old as 90 years.

Chateau Ste. MichelleChateau Ste. Michelle

Built on the 1912 estate owned by Seattle lumber baron Frederick Stimson, the winery’s roots date back to the Repeal of Prohibition. In 1967 under legendary winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, a new line of premium vinifera wines was introduced called Ste. Michelle Vintners.

The first vines were planted at Cold Creek Vineyard in Eastern Washington in 1972. Four years later, Ste. Michelle Vintners built a French style winery Chateau in Woodinville, and changed its name to Chateau Ste. Michelle.

Since then, we have combined Old World winemaking traditions with New World innovation. In fact, Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the few premium wineries in the world with two state-of-the-art wineries, one for red and one for white. The whites are made at the Chateau in Woodinville, WA, while the reds are made at our Canoe Ridge Estate winery in Eastern Washington.

Passion for wine compels Clayhouse Wines to pursue a traditional, time-honored approach to winemaking. Each offering is carefully crafted from select grapes, hand-picked from small vineyard blocks that over the years have proven their ability to produce exciting wines.

Donelan Family WinesDonelan Family Wines

Our journey began not with the grafting of a vine or the crushing of a grape but with a philosophy: quality second to none. From that pursuit we strive to create a quality wine that pleases the palate, heart and mind. In each step of the process, we learn, grow and adapt to the changes in a vintage, and each one places us in the delicate tussle between farmer and land. Each vintage changes, challenges, and reconfigures our previously held beliefs as part of the evolution and continuation of man’s journey as stewards of the land. The more we work with a property, the more we can define it. It is the vineyard that teaches us restraint.

In the cellar, we watch over and guide the process from grape berry to wine. As stewards of the wine, vine and fermentation, we are the conductors of the symphony. Each varietal contributes its own temperament, each vineyard its own timbre, each vine its own instrument and each berry its own specific wave length. We conduct these elements to create a rapid, but very soft, pianissimo, Chardonnay or Roussanne. Or perhaps a slow, strong and loud, fortissimo, Syrah. We let the wine speak. We guide it though its journey and create symphonies, quartets, and solos. This pursuit is a journey of learning, fellowship, pleasure, and fun.

Dutton-GoldfieldDutton-Goldfield

Dutton-Goldfield Winery began with a handshake in a vineyard in 1998, when longtime colleagues and friends Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield recognized a shared vision between them — to craft wines that express the personalities of their cool-climate vineyards, and which they'd enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables.

A fifth-generation farmer, Steve grew up with a love of driving tractors, and without any doubt about his future career. His father, Warren Dutton, had begun growing grapes in the western reaches of Russian River Valley in the mid-1960s, at a time when most people thought the area was too cool to grow fruit for quality still wine. Steve started working with his father when he was five years old, and joined Dutton Ranch full-time in 1987. Today, along with his mother and brother, he manages the family business, which has grown from its original 35-acre home shop vineyard to over 80 separate vineyards comprising more than 1,000 acres throughout western Russian River Valley.

After graduating from Boston's Brandeis University, Dan headed west to begin a career in research chemistry, with a few detours for skiing and hiking on the way. Always an outdoor enthusiast, the life of lab work was quickly replaced with a dream of winemaking when his brother turned him on to the 1969 Burgundies. Dan entered the University of California at Davis, graduating with an M.S. in Enology in 1986. He gained knowledge on the job with stints at Robert Mondavi Winery and Schramsberg as well as winemaking in Portugal for two years. He found his passion in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, first as the winemaker at the Burgundian-focused La Crema Winery, and then at Hartford Court, which was created under his direction. Dan's appreciation for the beauty of the extraordinary landscape around our home is reflected in his winemaking.

Foris VineyardsForis Vineyards

Founded by Ted and Meri Gerber, Foris Winery and Vineyards is family-owned and family-managed.

Gainey VineyardGainey Vineyard

The Gainey Vineyard is part of a large, sustainable farming operation owned and run by the Gainey family for the past 50 years. High quality and long term consistency of fruit are two principles that guide all farming decisions. Dan Gainey, Vineyard Manager Jeff Newton and Winemaker Jeff LeBard work closely to constantly strive to improve their fruit. By controlling all aspects of grape growing, Gainey Vineyard is able to ensure that quality takes priority over farming economics. The result are vines low in vigor that produce small yields and fruit with great concentration and complexity.

The goal of Gainey Vineyard’s winemaking program is to create wines of uncompromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyards from which they come. Toward that end, the Gaineys have recently constructed a new gravity flow winemaking facility. Grapes processed here are handled in the most gentle manner possible and then fermented and aged in one of five temperature and humidity controlled rooms.

Markham VineyardsMarkham Vineyards

Bordeaux immigrant Jean Laurent came to California in 1852 to seek gold but instead founded one of the first wineries in Napa Valley. In 1988, the old Laurent Winery once again rose like a phoenix to take on another new life. The winery was sold to Mercian Corporation and began an ambitious four-year, multi-million dollar renovation, expansion and vineyard-replanting program. These efforts would more than double the capacity and make Markham one of the most advanced, stunning winemaking facilities in the country. Even through the dust of the renovation, Markham was able to produce three of the number-one rated wines from California, as judged by Wine Spectator magazine.

Peju Province WineryPeju Province Winery

When Tony Peju purchased the 30-acre “Stephanie Vineyard” in 1983, it had been producing wine grapes since the early 1900s and some of the vines much longer. Today’s Rutherford H.B. Vineyard is an outstanding example of Napa Valley viticulture. Irrigation begins in late spring, tapering off at veraison (turning of color) so the plant focuses energy on ripening, not growth. To intensify flavors, superfluous grape clusters are “dropped” allowing those remaining to get full benefit of the vine’s photosynthesis. Harvest can take place in several passes as crews select clusters at optimum ripeness.

The Persephone Vineyard enjoys the same careful attention to viticulture as the Rutherford Estate. It is trellised to vertical shoot position and crop yields are kept low. The cooler springtime temperatures in Pope Valley necessitate frost protection at the vineyard — unlike Rutherford — and summer’s heat means irrigation is required. Even with its proximity to Napa Valley, it feels remote. Winding roads through steep canyons lead to Pope Valley and the landscape is reminiscent of an earlier era in California history. Grazing land and ancient oaks still cover rolling foothills watched over by craggy mountain peaks. It is a terroir ideal for grapes especially under the demanding and watchful eye of Tony Peju.

Ponzi VineyardsPonzi Vineyards

XXXXXXXXXSanford Winery

In 1971 Sanford Winery and Vineyards discovered an overlooked, grape-growing treasure in the Santa Rita Hills. Recognizing a magical combination of climate and soil conditions much like those in France's famed Burgundy province, Sanford planted the area's first Pinot Noir in its Sanford & Benedict vineyard.

Pinot Noir has thrived in the Santa Rita Hills ever since, and so has Sanford Winery. The pioneering winery's Pinot Noir ranks among the best and most distinctive in the world. And Sanford's leadership helped put Santa Barbara and the Santa Rita Hills on the map of the world's great wine regions.

Seven DaughtersSeven Daughters

Seven Daughters created its first Winemaker’s Blends back in 2008. By carefully selecting seven different varietals and blending them into balanced perfection, they produced a wine that is far better than the sum of its parts. A wine that is adventurous, but also pleasing to large crowds. That is approachable enough to enjoy with a girlfriend and a stack of magazines, but elegant enough to serve at a dinner party that calls for the “nice china.”

Since releasing the Seven Daughters Red and White Winemaker’s Blends, they have expanded the Seven Daughters portfolio to go beyond discovery offerings.
