California Pinot Noir: 10 Winery Mailing Lists to Join in 2017

California Pinot Noir is a favorite of many wine enthusiasts.  Here are 10 mailing lists we recommend signing up for in 2017 when looking for the best, with a description in their own words.


"Crafting wine with minimal intervention so a sense of place is elegantly reflected in every bottle"  Aubert Wines


"Focusing on a style of Pinot Noir that authentically refelects the terroir of each vineyard, striving for a complex, aromatic, lower alcohol expression of the varietal"  Cobb Wines


"Ehren loves to experiment with his favorite varietals, coaxing out their various incarnations from different climates (cool, cooler, and coolest), soil types, and rootstock."   Failla Wines


"Sustainable farming techniques from the fertile cross currents of permaculture, agro-ecology, and the agricultural philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the father of biodynamic farming"   Littorai Wines


"Pinot Noir using old world Burgundian techniques applied to our new world vineyards"  Kistler Vineyards

Kosta Browne

"Obsessed with Pinot Noir"  Kosta Browne

Rivers Marie

"Single variety wines made to reflect the vineyard and vintage from which they come"  Rivers Marie Winery


"Producing terroir driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit" Rochioli Winery


"Aspiring to make great wines from California's most exciting mountain vineyards"   Rhys Vineyards

Williams Selyem

"Doing everything for the sake of quality.  Short cuts only lead to disappointment"  Williams Selyem Winery

The best way to obtain the above wines is direct purchase from the winery mailing list.  It will ensure that you eventually have access to the entire portfolio, and that you receive the wine in perfect condition.  Mailing list members often enjoy additional benefits as well related to winery visits and library offerings.  It is the way to go when it comes to buying wine.
