I have to admit that I had lost track of Page Mill over the years. Known, at least by me, for their attractive Santa Barbara Pinot noirs, the entire winery moved from Santa Cruz to Livermore 11 years ago. Since then the winery has remained small, but has come to focus on Livermore fruit for nearly all of their needs.
A small scale family run operation, Page Mill is an intimate and welcoming operation. Its sits in contrast to the bigger polished operations like Wente both in the vibe as well as the wines produced. Case in point, their 2010 Page Mill Petite Sirah Estate Vineyard is rich, and complex with an old school quality to it. It feels hand made and reflects the state of Livermore today. A blend of the new and the old producing something that is comfortable and just so easy to like!
