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.
Becoming a Cartograph Circle member will give you exclusive access to our wines and the very tiny lots that are only released to the Circle members. To see all the benefits and start your Circle membership CLICK HERE.
2012 Perli Vineyard Pinot Noir
What an incredible vintage the 2012 Perli Pinot Noir was. And yes, I used the word "was" because it sold out this month. There are two more opportunites to taste this delicious wine: joining the Winemaker Tasting on July 11 which will be a vertical tasting of the Perli Vineyard 2009 - 2012 and we have two cases of 2012 Perli reserved for that tasting, or come see us in McMinnville, Oregon July 24 - 26 where we will be pouring the 2012 Perli Vineyard Pinot Noir at the International Pinot Noir Celebration. Hope you can join us at one of these events. - Serena
Times of transition
The Floodgate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley was sold in 2014 and the name did not remain with the vineyard property so we are now debuting the 2014 Starscape Vineyard Gewürztraminer. Starscape Vineyard is the new name for the former Floodgate Vineyard effective with our 2014 vintages. We'll release the last Floodgate vintage, the 2013 Floodgate Vineyard Pinot Noir in fall and then going forward, it will be Starscape Vineyard.
