Minimalist winemaking, addition by subtraction.

Philosophy

Weatherborne produces limited production Pinot Noir and Grenache from the Sta. Rita Hills of California. We value craft and dedication, without pretense. Our wines are hand-made and expressive of place. The weather each year shapes what you find in the bottle. We use minimal oak and plenty of whole cluster, giving the wine structure, yet without being heavy handed. We use screwcaps to guarantee the quality of each bottle of wine made.
