Our wines are extremely limited releases from tiny parcels that we have selected within our acclaimed vineyards.
The pandemic and fires took careful navigation, but the wines we made were beacons of hope. More coming soon.
We hear it all the time at the winery: although Sauvignon Blanc is the most recognizable white wine that we make, ours is something different. We produce it from Matthew's Station, another of our vineyards under the care and attention of renowned winegrower Steve Dutton. This wine began as a Private Label project we did for a local farm-to-table restaurant, but now we keep almost all to share at the winwery. We love this wine for its unique balance of brightness and volume after a little aeration in the glass. The 2020 vintage shows notes of white nectarine and elderflower, with a trace of clove, and a minerality-driven finish of Persian lime.
Winemakers love rosé. At Coterie, we've always made a little behind the scenes. Now it's a regular part of our lineup. We don't make much, but whatever we do produce comes decidedly from Catie's Corner. This vineyard is farmed for us by Steve Dutton, one of the most revered winegrowers of the Russian River Valley. Each year, we select the juiciest, brightest parts of this vineyard the same vineyard as our single-vineyard Pinot Noir, give this fruit just a few hours on the skins, and finish the delicate result in stainless steel. The 2020 vintage has a light salmon color with inviting notes of tangerine, strawberry, and melon, with hints of rose petal and biscuit.
A small group with shared interests or tastes.
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.
