Nash Mill Vineyard
In 2017, we acquired one of our favorite Northern California Pinot Noir vineyards, Nash Mill Vineyard. Located outside of Philo in the North-Western portion of the Anderson Valley AVA, in the so-called Deep End, the small vineyard is a prized late ripening site which benefits from its proximity to the California coast.
Originally planted in 2003, Nash Mill Vineyard is an approximately 4 acre vineyard situated amongst the redwoods in one of the coolest pockets of the Anderson Valley about 8.5 miles east of Wentworth Vineyard in the hills outside Philo. Nash Mill Vineyard has become a dependably excellent site for Pinot Noir with several single vineyard wines from the site earning scores of 90+ points and receiving rave reviews. When we bought the vineyard, we immediately switched farming practices from sustainable to organic methods and are determined to be be attentive stewards of the special site. We are proud to partner with the Nature Conservancy and Trout Unlimited on restoration efforts for Mill Creek which runs through the property.
We are focused on diligent, uncompromising farming and proud to utilize organic practices exclusively in the vineyard.
Our first small-lot Estate Grown Pinot will be from vintage 2018 and will be commercially available in 2020. The wine is an indigenous fermentation, aged in a mix of new and neutral French oak displaying a distinctive, balanced, bright yet earthy, terroir-driven, small-lot wine from 100% Estate Grown grapes.
We also sell grapes to a handful of top Pinot Noir producers including Waits-Mast, and Drew Family Cellars, each of whom have produced delicious wine from Nash Mill Vineyard.
