Winemaking, like calligraphy, can be described as an artistic process
of forming beautiful characters and arranging them by hand in a delicate way
so the end result possesses integrity, harmony, ancestry and rhythm.

We are a female-owned and run small winery who produces this 100% small-lot Pinot Noir which comes from the acclaimed Bootlegger's Hill Vineyard in the Russian River Valley appellation.

Our first vintage is 2021.
Please join our list to learn more about our Fall 2023 inaugural release and be a part
of our journey as we launch Calligraphy wines!

Hill Vineyard

A former apple orchard, the vineyard sits at 750 ft. elevation

above the fogline between the towns of Sebastopol and

Occidental surrounded by redwood and fir forests at the

site of a prohibition era moonshine operation.

The Goldridge soil profile at Bootlegger's is a sandy loam

and sandstone which is known for excellent drainage and

less fertility. The soil holds just enough water for the plants

to take what they need without over-stressing the vines.

Due to the cooler climate at Bootlegger’s, the wines tend to

be elegant and rich. Six different clones planted here make

it unique. 115, 667, Pommard, 37, Calera and Elite all offer up

something a little different to each other and yet still have

distinctive Bootlegger’s characteristics.


Vineyards "GCV"

This is our twenty-four acre estate vineyard in Sebastopol

prepped and set to be planted in spring of 2023

It has Goldridge soils along with a mix of Blucher sandy loam.

The Blucher creek runs through this property making it very

exceptional and of historic value.

The microclimate which brings in a fog blanket every morning

makes it ideal for Pinot Noir.
