WINES INSPIRED BY GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY

Highway 12 is atypical of other wineries in that we makes use of a number of different growing appellations to create our wines. Our wines offer insight into these various growing areas while maintaining a unique style that sets it apart from other wineries. We traverse the iconic appellations of Sonoma, Napa and the foothills of the Sierras to find the perfect grapes, putting our longstanding friendships with growers to perfect use. Our 3 generations of winegrowing family heritage are apparent with every sip. 

A WINEMAKING STYLE ROOTED IN TRADITIONS AND MADE TO PLEASE

“It all starts in the vineyard”. Nearly every discussion on winemaking begins with that statement. And it should. There are so many variables that come into play prior to harvest, during harvest, even prior to the start of the growing season. Vineyard maintenance and management, like any farming effort, requires constant attention if the fruit is to be harvested and delivered to the winemaker at its full potential. Our growers are masters of their craft.

HANDS OFF APPROACH TO WINEMAKING

Harvest, Crush, Ferment, Barrel Age, Bottle, Repeat. No fancy winemaking recipes here! We make sure we get the best quality fruit and try to not get in the way. Our third generation winemaking team continues to use the classic winemaking techniques that represent decades of expertise. Great wines at a very cool and cozy location. Long known for their casual congeniality – you won’t find a friendlier spot in town!
