Family, legacy, and dedication are critical concepts for us here at Ernest Vineyards. We are Ernest Vineyards because we believe that exceptional wines are primarily an expression of their place, their vineyards. To make the wines that we are passionate about, we sought out vineyards from places that embody the magical combination of sunny days, foggy cool nights, and sandy soils that are all meticulously farmed by growers that care. In those vineyards, we partner with farmers who work the earth with patience, treating the soil with respect and humility.
In the winery, we focus on simple and elegant winemaking, applying a subtle touch to create the purest expression of each and every vintage and the land from which it came. Perhaps most important, we humbly follow in the footsteps of our namesake, Ernest Gottula, a patriarch of our extended family, who has inspired us with his honor, diligence, and heart-felt commitment to his brood. Ernest is forever memorialized in our company logo; a portrait of him by a family matriarch, Joanne Thompson. One of the main reasons we make wine is to keep this legacy alive.
