Vinewood is one of the many alternative
labels of Fetzer Vineyards in Mendocino.
They are one of the pioneers in California
wine and certainly, along with Parducci,
the first to make a statement about the
region.
In 1958, Barney Fetzer bought a sheep
farm in the Redwood Valley of Men-
docino, California. Ten years later, his sons,
Jim and John, turned the sheep barn into
a winery and the rest is history.
Fetzer is not only a pioneer in Mendocino
County, but they were the first winery to
declare a war on waste back in 1990. They
were one of the first wineries to plant a
completely organic and sustainable gar-
den with zero waste.
They eventually began growing com-
pletely organic grapes.
Having been to their Bonterra property
over 25 years ago, I can tell you that it was
mesmerizing. The best part was the fruits
and vegetables they grew.
Although the ownership has changed,
Fetzer hasn’t. Winemaker Charlie Gilmore
understands the legacy that rests on his
shoulders and doesn’t take it lightly.
Our selection is a testament to that ded-
ication - Fetzer is still as great as it’s al-
ways been. Our Pinot Noir comes from
the cooler areas of the North Coast and
shows it in lovely strawberry and cotton
candy components that seem to last
endlessly on the palate. The finish is ev-
erything Pinot Noir should be; elegant
and lovely.
