Hello and welcome to Whetstone Wine Cellars! I wanted to invite you to a glimpse into our short history in order that you might better understand where we’re coming from and where we’re headed. So here goes… I started working at Turley Wine Cellars in the summer of 1998 when I semi-jokingly told a friend I’d do just about anything for a shot at winemaking (be very careful what you ask for.). Over the following 6 & ½ years I would plant 30 acres of hillside vineyard, become fluent in Spanish, help manage over 200 organically farmed acres of grapes, become assistant winemaker, start my own label, and begin consulting full time. Turley provided for me a venue to do all those things with a continuing education in hands-on farming and meticulous, cutting-edge winemaking. To further enhance my small winery experience, I went to work in Burgundy for Domaine Dujac during a short stint in the summer of 2001. These days I am full-time debtor for Whetstone, CEO and Co-Founder of Manifesto! Wines, and a consulting winemaker for JT Wines. My love for wine has taken me down several paths that have ultimately merged in the form of Whetstone Wine Cellars. Offerings will consist of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Viognier and Chardonnay. I appreciate your interest in our site and in our wines. Stay tuned… Sincerely, Jamey Whetstone Read less

Medium red, with an unfiltered appearance. Slightly diffuse aromas of red raspberry, cinnamon and underbrush. Spicy and firm-edged, with a savory character but limited flesh to the raspberry and earth flavors. Nicely firmed on the back by a fresh acid spine and a fine dusting of tannins. Whetstone makes this entry-level pinot from a blend of vineyards. ** Only 1 in Stock **
