"Racines is a single wine brand created by some of the finest hands of the winemaking world - we are talking Burgundy royalty teaming up with California genius. Etienne de Montille, proprietor of iconic Burgundy estate Domaine de Montille founded in the 17th century, and his Chef de Cave, Brian Sieve, have collaborated with Rodolphe Peters of cult Champagne house Champagne Péters and renowned, hugely in demand winemaker Justin Willett of Santa Barbara AVA, USA with a shared vision to create some of the most exceptional wines in the world from the finest vineyards in the land, stunning vineyards which are hugely in demand with the most savvy and ambitious winemakers.
From vineyards that lie on the Santa Rosa Road corridor of the Santa Rita Hills and farmed using organic practices. These sites consist of varying soil types from sandy loam, clay loam, chert, shale. This is a wine that we believe best represents the potential of the region as a whole. Vineyards: Bentrock Vineyard La Encantada Vineyard La Rinconada Vineyard Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. On average, one third whole cluster is retained during fermentation using native yeast. The winemakers punch down for about three weeks before being put to standard 228l barrels for elevage.
VINOUS - 91 pts "The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is bold, punchy and super-expressive, with lovely aromatic nuance to play off the dark cherry and plum fruit. Classy and layered, the appellation Pinot is a wine of real character and breeding. Then again, that is not surprising given that vineyard sites are La Encantada, Sanford & Benedict, La Rinconada and Bentrock. The 2017 is a gorgeous wine from Etienne De Montille and Justin Willett." - Antonio Galloni"
