The Cartograph philosophy is simple: to make wine of unique character and complexity, you have to start with grapes that demonstrate unique character and complexity. We prize elegance, balance and nuance in our wines.
By joining our Circle of friends you gain exclusive access to our limited production wines created from the grapes grown in the valleys and on the mountains that surround our home in Healdsburg, California. Several of our small production wines, will only be allocated to the Cartograph Circle. For example, in 2012 we had a Green Valley vineyard that yielded less than half a ton of fruit. Rather than incorporate that into a blend, we chose to make a vineyard designate Pinot noir which is exclusive to the Circle. In September 2014 we released a special Sangiovese that was also only be allocated to the Circle. In addition to receiving exclusive access to our wines, there are additional benefits that come with being a part of the Cartograph Circle.
We hope you'll join us in the Cartograph Circle. We look forward to spending time with you at the Circle events and in the new tasting room.
