Las Madres - Carneros
Our search for the best grapes came to fruition when we met John Painter and Jean Gadiot, who have owned Las Madres vineyard since its inception. Neglected into a sea of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir plantings, John and Jean converted overgrown pasture land into a beautiful VSP trellised, cool-climate Syrah vineyard with two distinct blocks.
We are honored that they have allowed us to give our wine a Vineyard designate and proud to say that our wine is made with as little interference as possible. We believe that great wine can only come from a great vineyard, and we try and let Las Madres tell its own story in each bottle. When the year is right, we will do small bottling of 100% Whole cluster fermented Syrah to truly showcase an exceptional vineyard in exceptional years.
