Stickybeak is Australian slang for a busybody or nosy neighbor and fits this winery which calls itself "An inquisitive bunch of vintners from Napa." The principals started importing Australian wines some 15 years ago. Veteran winemaker Wayne Donaldson (30 vintages at well known estates such as Brokenwood in Australia and Domaine Chandon in Napa) was brought on board to produce the wines under the Stickybeak label.
Several varietals are produced including Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast (80% from Stage Gulch Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap).
Cool website. Wines can be purchased through the winery's online store.
