NEWS & EVENTS
Carved out of the lows hills above Freestone, a tiny village on the West Sonoma Coast, sits the seven acre vineyard known as Zephyr Farms. Deep coastal fog and afternoon westerly winds yield tiny berries with thick skins, resulting in wines that are highly perfumed and complex. These are wines of wonderful irony as they combine concentration of fruit and spice with freshness on the palate. The tannins are more pronounced than our other Pinot Noirs, attributable to the intense winds the grapes face (Zephyr quite literally means a western wind in Greek). Yet, the mouth-feel and body of the wine remains delicate and silky.
