WINES BEYOND APPELLATION BOUNDARIES
When our winemakers think about how to make a great
wine, they start in the vineyard. And that vineyard has no
boundaries. It may begin in northern Napa and end on
the hillsides of Sonoma. It might stretch across mountains
and valleys to Lodi in San Joaquin or meander down the
Pacific Coast to Monterey.
When the barriers of traditional appellations are lifted, a
progressive group of winemakers sees no limit to the kind
of wine they can make. Those winemakers, led by Ghost
Pines Vintner Michael Eddy, are turning out remarkable
wines that blend the best of California's diverse appellations.
MEET THE VISIONARY BEHIND OUR WINES
For Winemaker Michael Eddy, it's all about finding the best grapes, regardless of appellation.
The way Michael sees it, "The vineyards don't know where the county lines are." He looks for
grapes that will showcase layers of varietal flavor in the bottle.
A self-proclaimed foodie, Michael nurtures his passion for all things epicurean. At home, he
makes his own cheese and bakes his own bread. At Ghost Pines, he experiments with grapes
from different vineyards to bring forth the rich fruit flavors that make our wines so memorable.
So, it's no coincidence that every bottle of Ghost Pines goes hand-in-hand with great food.
