Anthill Farms Comptche Ridge Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 02795


The three partners at Anthill Farms crossed paths while working at Williams-Selyem in 2003 after a few years as cellar rats in California, Oregon, and Virginia. They started Anthill Farms in 2004, making eight-and-a-half barrels of wine their first year. Today, Anthill produces six single-vineyard Pinots and two appellation wines every year; depending on the vintage, they may also produce two or three Syrahs. They wish to stay small and quality-driven. The remote Comptche Ridge Vineyard is located in a small natural clearing above the town of Comptche, just inland from the northern Mendocino County coast. Owned and managed by the Weir family, Comptche Ridge is dry-farmed on a complex mix of fine sandy-clayey Franciscan soils, and is ringed completely by high redwoods and Douglas-fir. This vineyard is planted primarily to Swan clone.
