Cartograph: Our Journey In Wine
Great wine takes you places. It takes you to the region where the grapes grew, to the time and place where you first tasted that wine, and conjures memories of sharing wine with friends and family.
Cartograph is itself a destination, a road map and a journey. That journey is represented in the imagery that adorns the Cartograph label. Look closely and you’ll see where we’ve been, where our paths have crossed and the circumstances of several careers and experiences that defined who we are, how we think, how a passion for great wine was instilled within us and, finally, how Cartograph was created.
When you enjoy a Cartograph wine, our journeys come together. Where were you when you had your first taste of Cartograph? Where were you when a glass of wine truly captured your attention? Where is your favorite wine from? Share your stories with us and join our growing community of wine lovers at Cartograph.

The Cartograph Estate Vineyard
Drum roll: On Janaury 6th we closed on the purchase of a vineyard in Sonoma County planted to 9.75 acres of Pinot noir! Creating our own estate vineyard will allow us to control everything in our production process, from budbreak all the way to popping the cork. Read more here.
We are so excited for 2016 as we have several projects coming to fruition. We start the year with our big announcement on Jan. 7 followed by several fun tasting events. Our sparkling project will begin it's release late this spring. We'll have more release parties this year for the Cartograph Circle with the goal to continue with our theme: smaller is better. Keep in touch with us via the newsletter, social media, and come visit us at the tasting room. Happy new year! - Serena & Alan
