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.

Veraison Just Getting Started
Fruit-set in the Russian River Valley Pinot blocks looks good and we're at the beginning of Veraison. This is when the grapes start to color up and begin to accumulate sugar.
We'll be keeping an eye on the clusters and anything that doesn't ripen uniformly will get dropped when we are about 80% through Veraison. This is pretty early for Veraison so we definitely need to jump start harvest preparation.
Next Event: Taste of Sonoma
