Petrichor (pet-ri-kor) n. the scent of rain on dry earth.
We chose this obscure term for our wine because, in a word, Petrichor defines our passion for terroir driven wines. We want our wines to express the robust interplay of our volcanic soil and the diverse elements of the Redwood Hill climate.
But beyond its efficient and eloquent expression of the terroir, Petrichor has a transportive quality. Petrichor connects us to nature and becomes a smell we can remember and a memory we can smell. We hope that when you first sip Petrichor wine, you will feel that same connection and be transported, from wherever you are, to the unique terroir of our vineyard high atop Redwood Hill.
