OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

We believe that the Annapolis environment provides the optimum conditions for Pinot Noir -- our role is simply to allow those conditions to flourish.  Deficit irrigation, minimum spray, and open canopy ensure that our grapes take advantage of the natural backdrop of the Sonoma Coast.​
