2017 Garys’ Vineyard, Pinot Noir

A unique partnership between two legendary characters

Facts of Note

FERMENTATION

17% Whole cluster

CONCRETE

55% Fermented in concrete

SOIL

Glacial alluvial

The Santa Lucia Highlands appellation is centered upon the two Garys’, and it is fitting they should have a vineyard that is a tribute to their collaboration. Garys’ is a viticultural partnership between Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni, where their experience and passion for farming are poured into this exceptional site.


The benefactor of one of California’s longest growing seasons, which results in slow and gentle fruit development on the vine, this wine displays rhubarb, vibrant citrus zest and spiced plum. A 19-month barrel program preserves this wine’s electric character.
