Ernest

Ernest Vineyards specializes in site-specific wines. Each of our wines comprises grapes from one vineyard and one vineyard only. For our Ernest labels, we use grapes from seven sites in all. Some sites are valley floor, some are on hillsides. Some face west, all are considered cold-climate. We work closely with growers and vineyard managers at each site to dial-in the farming to adhere to a style that maximizes flavor ripeness while keeping sugars down and acidity high. The result: Wines that are pure expressions of the sites from which they came.

Eugenia

We produce Rosé and other fun wine projects, under the Eugenia label. Our current release, from the 2020 vintage, is our first Estate bottling of Rosé from the Cleary Freestone Ranch, made from Pinot Noir picked specifically for this Rosé.

Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir 2020

Pale light pink-salmon color with aromatic intensity. Full of fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas at first. Herbaceous hints are followed by notes of mandarin oranges and honey crisp apples. On the palate the wine delivers a refreshing burst of these same fruits, laced by a juicy and brilliant acidic profile. This Rosé has a lot of depth and complexity, with a finish that is refreshing to the end.



Edaphos

In addition to Ernest and Eugenia, we own and operate a third label: Edaphos (pronounced ee-dah-fos). It means “base,” “ground,” and “soil” in Greek; we felt it was a good expression of our attitude behind this winemaking. We consider this part of our business to be our “laboratory,” the place where we make small-lot wines that incorporate new and exciting approaches to winemaking with different styles and off-beat grape varietals. Sometimes we also call it our “sandbox.” The Edaphos strategy enables us to explore, experiment, and apply some of the lessons we learn to wines we make under our other labels. It also allows us to produce different wines whenever we feel like making them.
