At Whistling Dog Cellars we don’t just own the winery and vineyard, we actually do the work. One of us is the primary worker in every single step of our vineyard and winery activities; we have no other employees. Growing and making world-class Pinot is not just our passion, it is our livelihood, it is the only thing we do. We don’t just stake our reputation on it; we stake our family’s welfare on it. Ripening Pinot Noir Grapes We spend almost all of our energy tending the vines. One of us is in the vineyard everyday; in most cases from sunrise to sunset. Using sustainable, dry-farming techniques, we do all that we can to ensure the best growing and ripening conditions, given each season’s unique characteristics. By the time our estate grapes reach the crush pad, every vine has been touched by us at least 25 times since the previous year's harvest. In the winery, on the other hand, we take a minimalist approach and let Nature take its course. Our role is to assist in the winemaking process Read more »
