angeline pinot noir
artesa reserve chardonnay

the name 'pinot noir' is derived from the french words for 'pine' and 'black' suggesting the shape and color of the tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped fruit. The grape is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine, but when nurtured in the vineyard and tamed by a passionate winemaker the effort will yield fantastic wine. Pinot Noir has such a difficult reputation that some declare, 'God made Cabernet Sauvignon whereas the devil made Pinot Noir.'
