California, USA

Dating back sum 240 years ago, California wine started in San Diego at the Mission de Alcalá, the first Franciscan mission in The Californias. After the gold rush in 1849, wineries then began to populate in Northern California around Sonoma and Napa Valley and the industry took off. Things slowed down during prohibition, of course, but after winning in both the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon categories during The Judgement of Paris in 1976, California (particularly Napa Valley) was back on the map. California now makes up for 80% of wine made in the U.S.

California, famous for its fruit-forward, audacious wines that focus grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. California is characterized by a mediterranean climate, making this region ideal for full-bodies red wines. That being said, many areas closer to the Pacific Ocean benefit from cooling winds and layers of fog that are beneficial for grapes including Pinot Noir and many white wines.

Todd and Erin are not only co-founders and co-owners of the winery; they touch every single aspect of the business. They connect with growers. They interact with distributors. They respond to customers. They deliver wines. They tackle paperwork. Just about the only thing the couple doesn’t do is make the wine—they leave that to Ernest’s winemaker, Joseph Ryan. Neither Todd nor Erin plans to change that anytime soon. Both Erin and Todd hail from agricultural families, and they believe in relationships with small farmers. Ernest works with 15 different farmers overall—winegrowers who represent 17 different sites across Sonoma County. Their wines tell their stories as much as they tell their own. They consider these farmers part of their extended family.

This Petit Arvine is from the Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino County about 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is an incredible, cool climate vineyard site that produces a complex white wine.
