We hope you’ll join us for this unique look at how Cartograph wines evolve from vineyard to glass.


If you've ever visited us during harvest, you know that Alan always has a small batch of something percolating on the bar. You might get a taste of Pinot juice from a sample that was taken in the vineyard that morning, or a fermentation that is just taking off at the winery. The reactions we get are almost always ones of surprise that what is in the glass will eventually become an amazingly complex and graceful wine.

When Alan started sugar sampling the grapes during, he saved the juice samples and froze them. He has now created a new tasting experience called “Inside Pinot” that lets visitors sample along as he gives a verbal and visual tour of how Pinot Noir is made. We will taste juice samples as well as finished wines from Cartograph. 

$50 per person (Circle members $40)
