For over forty million years, the diatom has been a crucial source of food for marine life and carbon dioxide for all living organisms on earth. Encased by a microscopic, jewel-like shell extracted from the water, these skeletons of silica fossilize on the ocean floor forming a bed of diatomite. Replete with this chalky white earth, the Santa Rita Hills serve as an ideal platform to explore and exploit this instrumental medium in our world. These soils, coupled with the severe marine influence from the oceans of their provenance, warrant attentive execution. 2008 marks the fourth harvest of this project, utilizing the Clos Pepe, Babcock and Huber vineyards in the appellation as voices for place. Through these three small and specific sites, there will be a journey through solitude, tranquility and the transitory nature of life. The concept and wines are presented by owner/producer Greg Brewer. – Description from JelaDragoljevic
