This land has an identity. These mountains, this soil, the rocks, the quality of air and the wind. All these traits contribute to a character unique to this very part of the earth. Our goal as a family is to work with nature, through farming and crafting wines, and to preserve this identity in wines that express this very site.
The personality of this land was first recognized when Gary Pisoni began planting grapes in 1982 — some of the very first in this region. Each year we learn more about the characteristics of our vineyards; farming and winemaking to steadily improve the sustainability of what we do, and the wines we strive to create.
BY NATURE, instinct and knowledge, we select and balance the vines for each site. All work is done by hand – from planting to canopy work to harvest. Our farming philosophy at Pisoni Vineyards is rooted in Burgundian traditions and sustaining the land. From each year’s generous harvest we craft Pisoni Estate wines. Additionally, we share our grapes with some of the most prestigious Pinot Noir producers in California in relationships built over years. At the base of all our work is our love of this land and respect for it.
