TWO UNIQUE VINEYARDS
“It has always been my dream to plant a vineyard and make wine from it. Wines that are the highest quality obtainable. Wines that provide a lens on where they were grown. CIRQ is the realization of that dream.”
The vision for CIRQ first took shape several years ago when I discovered what we consider to be two of the best sites in one of the world’s greatest regions for Pinot Noir, the Russian River Valley. I jumped at the opportunity to farm them and make wine exclusively from these two vineyards. I call them Treehouse and Bootlegger’s Hill.
Charlie Chenoweth and I farm these two estate vineyards and produce a single Pinot Noir from each. Production is always going to be extremely limited for the simple reason that CIRQ is an estate-driven program. I’ve done this with one goal in mind: to provide enthusiasts with wines of uncommon breeding that delight their senses and connect them to these special places.
