Winemaker Notes

Originally our shy teenager and later our seductive cougar, vineyard maturity has evolved our 2A into a soul diva like Aretha Franklin. The intensity of color, flavors and tannins now offers a more structured and soulful wine. Ruby in color, there are notes of caramel, cocoa, dark cherries, cinnamon toast and even black tea, with a nice long finish. The bright acids pair well with many foods, including smoked duck or other game.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
A dark core of strawberry and cherry fruits is leveled by lots of turned earth, graphite, slate and brown spice at the edges on this single-clone showcase from a vineyard on the appellation's eastern front. The palate is full of lively lemon peel acidity, showing dried strawberry ripeness and sagebrush herbals.

Flying Goat Cellars, California
Flying Goat Cellars Winery Image
Norm Yost has been making wine for over thirty vintages and has a particular passion for Pinot Noir. In 2000, he launched his own label, Flying Goat Cellars, specializing in vineyard designated Pinots from California’s Central Coast.

Two pygmy goats, Never and Epernay, inspired Norm to name his winery Flying Goat Cellars. The goats were his pets and lawnmowers and came to be a source of entertainment and enjoyment, with their unrestrained spiral loops, flipper turns and straight-legged leaps. When pondering a name for his new wines and brand, Norm wanted to project fun, enjoyment, and happiness. While many people put their own name or their children’s name on their label or vineyard, Norm’s playful spirit opted to name it after his kids. His kids, of course, were those two pygmy goat pets, who had always inspired him and made him laugh.

Norm shared his passion with Kate Griffith by courting her with his first release of Goat Bubbles in 2006. We don’t know if it was the bubbles or the winemaker's charm but it culminated in a marriage and a family of wines.

Now Flying Goat Cellars produces about 2,500 cases a year and includes three labels: Flying Goat, Goat Bubbles and YNOT. Flying Goat focuses on vineyard designated Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris. Goat Bubbles offers four vineyard designated sparkling wines: Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, and Crémant, all made in the traditional méthode champenoise with the secondary fermentation in the bottle. YNOT is Pinot Noir blended from the finest of Santa Barbara County vineyards.
