Why Pinot Noir?
Pinot Noir is one of the most challenging wines to get right, so why do winemakers love to work with it? First and foremost, Pinot requires cool-climate growing conditions and is not easy to work with in the vineyard. During the spring delicate buds are susceptible to frost, which is common in Pinot’s preferred cool and coastal growing areas. During the summer months thin skins can easily be sunburned and, when harvest arrives, Pinot prefers the precision and care by the human hand to avoid bruising. The producers of Anderson Valley enjoy the challenge and take great care and pride to ensure that our Pinot Noir is taken care of and loved by the most sophisticated of palates.
