Welcome to Waxwing Wines

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.

mailing list to hear about future tastings, sales
events, and other Waxwing news.

    Rosé.  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.

    reviewed in the PinotReport (93 pts):  Medium ruby color; rich, ripe
    herbal cherry aromas; deep, bright, red cherry flavors with forest
    floor notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, earthy,
    rich Pinot that is drinking well now.
