Often referred to as “the barometer of Russian River Valley” as she is one of the earliest to harvest her grapes, owner and winemaker Kathleen Inman is quietly making natural wines that feel alive on the palate. This self-proclaimed “grape groper” picks by taste and feel, not by brix, the accumulation of sugar in the grapes. She adds no sulfur, enzymes, water or cultured yeasts during winemaking, and the fruit from her estate is certified organic.
Her specialty is elegant, European-style Pinot Noir, including a rare single vineyard sparkling wine, and her light and very dry Chardonnay and Pinot Gris also reflect the European sense of restraint.
