This label is a project of Bill Vyenielo, who as General Manager, helped develop Peter Michael Winery into the respected giant of the industry it is today. The word "Baton" refers to a simple hand tool traditionally used in modern quality winemaking. A Pinot Noir is offered from a small vineyard near Graton on the ridge overlooking the Laguna de Santa Rosa, and a Chardonnay from Charles Heintz Vineyard. Jeff Pisoni is the winemaker.
The wines are sold through a private mailing list.
