All of our pinot noirs are unfiltered and unfined, ensuring the purest expression of the grape. Because pinot noir is such a delicate grape, we do not use pumps; we use 100% gravity during harvest, crush, press, and bottling, to preserve the subtle nuances of the wine. And half of the fermentation bins are done with indigenous yeast.
Note: Minimum order for non-Wine Group members is three bottles or $75. Thank you!

In the second part of the book, he presents detailed producer profiles with accessibly written tasting notes on recent and mature vintages. A final section covers glassware, vintages, wine and food pairings, and other matters of interest to consumers. Maps prepared especially for this book cover all the major Pinot-producing regions in North America.
