THE VINEYARD

Panthea is located in the “deep end” of the Anderson Valley.  Perched atop a knoll 600 feet above the valley floor, the vineyard is bathed in the cooling ocean breeze that flows inland from the beautiful Mendocino Coast 20 miles away. Our estate vineyard is planted to California heritage clone Pommard & a small amount of Dijon to compliment.  The vineyards are steeply planted with a south eastern exposure. A shallow and rocky soil structure creates low yields resulting in an impactful minerality and depth of flavor. We meticulously tend the vineyard with no chemical fertilizers or sprays in order to realize the potential of the land and the innate terroir of the site.

THE WINE MAKING

When the grapes reach their peak ripeness they are hand picked early in the morning and carefully sorted before and after the de-stemming process allowing only the most ideal fruit to pass.  The wines are whole berry fermented using wild and heritage Burgundian yeasts in single-ton open top fermenters. Then a multi-day cold soak followed by a slow fermentation, all gently hand pushed down 2x per day for up to 14 days. Wines are pressed at dryness and aged for to 22 months in a combination of new 3 year aged and neutral French oak.  There are no chemical additives, fining or filtering at any time in the wine’s life. The wine is bottle aged for a 22 months before release.
