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.
Join us in the Cartograph Circle
We created the Cartograph Circle to give you exclusive access to our limited production wines. Becoming a Cartograph Circle member will not only give you access to our wines and the very tiny lots that are only released to the wine club, you will be invited to participate in special events with Alan and Serena. To see all the club benefits and start your Circle membership CLICK HERE for full details.
It’s been a truly exciting month as we wrapped up harvest season and opened the doors to the new tasting room. We’re looking forward to Thanksgiving as a day to enjoy being with friends and family, a delicious meal, and reflect on the amazing year this has been. Thank you all for continued your support in making this happen. You can read about it on our blog or on Facebook and Twitter.
Next Event: Damon Mattson Photography
Nov. 29th 5 - 9pm at the new tasting room
Local photographer, Damon Mattson, has amassed a fantastic portfolio of beautiful photographs that capture his passion for travel, culture, and wine. Five of his photographs printed on metal are on display at Cartograph and have drawn much attention. On Nov. 29 Damon will bring a collection of his photos to the tasting room for you to peruse and enjoy. Enjoy a glass of wine and immerse yourself in his beautiful visual art. Damon will be there to tell the stories behind his photos and answer any questions you may have. Perhaps you'll also find the perfect holiday gift for a friend or family. Damon Mattson Photography

- 2011 Perli Vineyard Pinot Noir, 125 cases produced
- 2011 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, 55 cases produced

Visiting our tasting room
This new tasting room spotlights masterfully crafted cool-climate Pinot noir (from both the nearby Russian River Valley and the remote Mendocino Ridge) and Alsace-style whites, by the glass/bottle or on tap—a first for Healdsburg. No reservations are needed for the signature tasting at the tasting room bar. However, reservations are required in advance for a one-of-a-kind immersive tasting with samples that take you through every step in the transformation of the Pinot grape from harvest through fermentation to finished wine.
Location: 340 Center St., Healdsburg (half a block from the main plaza, next door to Zin Restaurant)
Hours: 12 - 6:30pm daily - Opened Oct. 27th
