A small producer of ultra premium wines from premier vineyards and appellations in Northern California. The 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, the inaugural release, was sourced from Terra De Promissio Vineyard (100 cases).
According to Coastal Miwok mythology, Coyote "Olet'te" was thought of as the creator and supreme Chief forming the Petaluma Gap from the Sea and its first known inhabitants.
The winemaker is Alan Viader who grew up in the Napa Valley, working in the hillside vineyards and cellar at Viader. He has worked under several prominent winemakers including Tony Soter, Charles Hendricks, and Michel Rolland. In 2005, he became Director of Operations at Viader.
The wine is sold through a mailing list and vininformant.com.
