Winemaker Notes

After a rigorous sorting process, all three clones were de-stemmed to T-Bins and gently hand punched down once per day to minimize extraction and tannin.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
From a site near Taylor Mountain on the outskirts of the Petaluma Gap appellation, this red is light in color and delicate in a floral aroma. Earthy elements of sage and black tea underlie crisp, elegant flavors of cherry, pomegranate and blood orange. A lasting finish of baking spice caps it off.

Cellars 33, California
Cellars 33 Katie and John in the Vineyard Winery Image
The foundation of what became Cellars 33® began about 15 years ago when a man finally met the woman he knew he would marry. At the time, John was an active beer brewer and enthusiast in Baltimore, Maryland. The problem was, Katie wasn't a big fan of, nor terribly impressed with, beer or home brewing. What to do? Wine!! So, with the purchase of an $8 bottle of California Merlot, Cellars 33® was "born". With that beginning, including a small wine rack strategically placed on the top of their refrigerator (probably the warmest place in John's apartment), Katie and John undertook a journey to learn everything they could about wine. With frequent vacations to California and a fateful wine cruise to Italy in 2007, the die was cast. In 2007, it was time to get hands on, so John began with a brief harvest internship at Freeman Winery in Sebastopol, California. Those two weeks were filled with 16 hour days of intensely physical, hard work. Reluctant to return home to his law practice, he immediately began planning for a return. The following two years saw full internship positions at Freeman in addition to other trips for racking, blending and bottling what would become the first wines for Cellars 33®. Finally, in January 2010, with a 28 foot Penske truck packed full with all of their belongings, John and Katie, with their intrepid dog Max, drove across the country and settled here in San Francisco. Cellars 33® became licensed and started selling wine to a loyal Mailing List the following year and has experienced annual growth of 100%. Now with slightly over 1,000 cases produced annually, Cellars 33® focuses on premium vineyard sites for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and whatever else Katie lets John make.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
