David Arthur – Pritchard Hill, Napa [NJ Only]

United States - California

The winery and estate vineyards of David Arthur are situated high above the northeastern end of the Napa Valley, on Pritchard Hill. At elevations between 1,000-1,200 feet, Pritchard Hill boasts rocky volcanic soils, and a unique microclimate of very warm days and cool nights. The rough terrain stresses the vines, limiting grape production to tiny berries that may be small in stature, but provide immense, concentrated flavors in the wines. David Arthur’s location and use of estate grown fruit is integral to the full-bodied, complex wines associated with the label. Since 2008, Nile Zacherle has been winemaker.

Behrens Family Winery – Spring Mountain, Napa [NJ Only]

United States - California

A boutique winery in the truest sense. Owned by Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward, who’ve made wine under the Behren's label since 1993, Each wine is a low tech labor of love: crushed into one-ton T-bins, punched down by hand, gently transferred to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The couple also gravitates toward small, interesting and low-yielding vineyard sites, primarily in Napa Valley and Mendocino County, working with growers who they know, like and trust, and who are as obsessive about quality as they are. For Les and Lisa, it’s all about letting the vineyards steal the show, and allowing the wines to speak for themselves.

Dusky Goose – Dundee

United States - Oregon

Dusky Goose Pinot Noir was created to profile the red Jory soil from Dundee Hills, OR. For the 1st vintage, 2002, Portland attorney and businessman, John Carter hired Lynn Penner-Ash to craft the best Dundee Hills PN possible, regardless of cost, with one caveat - maximum production would be no more than 1000 cs. The 2009 Dundee Hills (900 cs) is sourced primarily from Rambouillet Vineyard, and Lynn selected 6 of the best barrels (out of 95) to be a single vineyard bottling. In a typical year, Dusky Goose crushes enough fruit to make 2500 cs, but only bottle 40% of the total production.
