We use traditional methods to craft limited-production Pinot Noir, Syrah, Riesling and Rosé from cool and windy coastal vineyards. Our winemaker and proprietor, Scott Sisemore, brings his drive, experience, and deep knowledge of red wine production to shape the wines from grape harvest to bottling.

Here's what he has to say about the Waxwing "Spring Hill Vineyard" Pinot Noir Rosé: "From Karen and Chris London's site just west of Petaluma, this is versatile as can be, with a mint-leaf freshness, peach skin and bright raspberry. A lot of stuffing for a pink Pinot." Find the full article here.
