HISTORY

Vineyard planted in 1997 with vines now over 20 years old

Established in 1997, Garys’ Vineyard is a partnership between the acclaimed Franscioni and Pisoni winegrowing families. Though located just a couple of miles south of Rosella’s Vineyard, Garys' yields its own profoundly unique expression of Pinot Noir. Like the two Garys who founded it, this luxurious wine is larger than life.

Crafted from the Pisoni clone and clone 23, with 18% whole cluster used during fermentation, it is an epic Pinot, with savory undertones, and seductive flavors of brambly blackberry, dark cherry, honeysuckle and hints of dark chocolate, sage, and lavender.
