After working in the same vineyards for years, winemaker Steven Urberg was intrigued by some of the windiest vineyard blocks in the estate. The wines coming from these wind-blown vines were more concentrated.

The grapes selected for WindVane come from the very best parcels throughout the 335 acres of estate vineyards in Carneros. Specific vines from the steepest, rockiest areas of the vineyards where the soils are very thin challenge the grapes throughout the growing season which results in small crops of very slow ripening fruit that produces intense character.

Windvane is an homage to the wind that creates the character of Carneros.
