Honest, Handmade Wines.
At first, when we moved here, what we noticed most was the quiet. But then slowly sound emerged. Now we have roosters at 4am, buzzing hummingbirds, red-tailed hawks in flight, and coyotes just before midnight.
The drive in from the city, if you’re coming that way, might take you up 121 and onto Old Sonoma Road, in the foothills of Los Carneros. You pass vineyards, but also cows and their calves nestled close in the shade of Eucalyptus trees, red barns, and barren fields. You come around the bend of Linda Vista Avenue as it winds towards Dry Creek Road, Mt. Veeder brooding in the distance. There is a wildness about this stretch of land, and unexpectedness. It is fertile; both untamed and carefully tended. But mostly it is the light that is divine. In the morning the hot air balloons arrive at the mercy of the wind like leaves on a current. Mid day there is intensity; every vine and house perched on the foothills stands in stark relief. Even the foggy, dense mornings are intense, how their mist clings to your skin like damp sheets.
“We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity—in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.” – Lindbergh.
