Winemaker's Notes

The concept is simple. It's the wine that's complex. Pisoni Vineyards & Winery produces one wine under one label: Pisoni Estate Pinot Noir.

When winemaker Jeff Pisoni looks at the label, a year's worth of vintage memories swirl in his head. Grapes handpicked under the cool cloak of night. Finicky Pinot Noir fruit hand-sorted and gently placed into fermentation vats, where cold soaks extract intense flavors and stabilize the rich garnet color of the grapes. Hand punchdowns of the cap provide tannins and a feel for the fermentation's progress. And, finally, wine sleeping in the finest French oak barrels, closely monitored until bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Fusing classic French techniques with innovative New World ideas, Jeff tries to make the best wine from nature's bounty every year. His winemaking artistry ensures the typicity of Pisoni Vineyards—and 365 days of his heart and mind—can be tasted in every bottle.

Critical Acclaim
