Pinot Noir
100% Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

Ceritas

Sonoma Coast, California


The mission of John and Phoebe Raytek at Ceritas is to make single-vineyard pinot noir and chardonnay that truly embody the character of the terroir from where the grapes are grown. Seeing themselves as students of the vineyard, each vintage imparts a new understanding.


The team at Ceritas works closely with farmers to utilize biodynamic farming, allowing the specific location, soils, and vintage to express themselves. Their winemaking practice is not dogmatic, but they refrain from over-manipulation, allowing the wines to show their true colors. 

The small-production wines of Ceritas are special for their complexity, balance, and sense of place, with quality as the tie that binds each earnest cuvée.
