Although an unfamiliar grape to some, Grenache Blanc is typically one of our most popular whites. We produce it from Catie's Corner, a vineyard farmed for us by Steve Dutton, one of the most revered winegrowers of the Russian River Valley. In 2019, we took a fun detour into "orange wine", a historic approach with some contemporary interest wherein a white wine is made with substantial skin contact, usually only in red winemaking. With 24 hours on the skins, our 2019 vintage has a distinctly golden color and a rich profile featuring golden raspberry and pear with traces of allspice and clove. It's a unique white wine with a boldness for hearty food.
Viognier is a very perfumed grape, which means that we have to watch it especially closely in the vineyard to keep flavors from becoming too opulent. We produce this wine from Catie's Corner, a vineyard farmed for us by Steve Dutton, one of the most revered winegrowers of the Russian River Valley. Each year, we look for the perfect point at harvest when this vineyard gives us everything pretty and floral that we love in this wine while maintaining excellent structure and balance. The 2019 vintage has fragrant notes of elderflower, orange marmalade, jasmine tea, and delicately creamy vanilla, with a spicy hint of pink peppercorn as a savory complement.
The Pinot Noir at Hartmann Vineyard has a particular finesse and elegance. Its delicate color belies its flavorful profile, which makes the wine playful and provocative. Hartmann Vineyard is farmed for us by Jim Schultze, whose wines from the vineyard next door at Windy Oaks we have admired for years. This is our coolest site for Pinot Noir, high above the Monterey Bay at the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Ripening is slow, extending well into October. We make this wine from Pommard 4 and 777 cuttings. The 2018 vintage has delicious notes of red cherry, spicebox, and garrigue complemented by a sumptuous texture.
The Pinot Noir at Kirk Williams Ranch is deeply flavorful with rich fruit, complex earthiness, and alluring spice. Kirk Williams Ranch is adjacent to the famed Garys' Vineyard (the land of which Kirk also owns) and just south of the renowned Rosella's Vineyard. Under Kirk's care and guidance, this vineyard has established its own outstanding reputation. We make our Kirk Williams Ranch Pinot Noir from Pommard 4, 667, and 777 cuttings, which are regarded by many growers as the cuttings best suited to the area. The 2018 vintage exhibits robust notes of dark raspberry, cherry, bramble, and baking spice with a polished, voluptuous finish.
There is so much demand for Pinot Noir in the Santa Lucia Highlands that sometimes it's easy to forget how delightful the cool-climate Syrah is here too. Sadly, many growers have grafted over their Syrah to other things. We make our Tondre Grapefield Syrah from a field blend of uncertain heritage. It is the darkest, spiciest red we produce. We were excited to discover this small block in 2016, the same vintage when we started our Syrah at Las Madres Vineyard in Carneros to the north. We have made both wines ever since. The 2021 vintage shows less spice than some years, and features rich blackberry and bramble, with a hint of toasty pie crust.

Since 2007, Coterie has produced wines from tiny parcels within acclaimed vineyards that express the distinction of their place. We make every wine berry to bottle by hand with exceptional care in the vineyard and non-interventional practices at the winery. The winery is nestled in a cozy neighborhood near downtown San Jose, where it transformed an old warehouse into a beautiful place for wine.
