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.

Harvest 2015 has kicked off for Cartograph and we are now about 85% picked! We started August 15 in the Russian River Valley. By August 20th we finished picking in the Russian River Valley, Green Valley and one of three vineyards in Mendocino Ridge. August 31 was our last pick in Sonoma County. Three more picks to go all in Mendocino! #harevst2015
Starscape Vineyard Harvest Snapshot
The photo on the left was taken July 14 and shows how the grapes were in veraison, just starting to pick. Twenty five days later the photo on the right was taken. We picked the first lot of pInot from Starscape six days after that photo. Harvest is an amazing time. - Alan
