Legend of Calista
The mythical Greek Goddess Calista was a huntress who possessed grace, seductive charm and strength above all rivals. Inspired by Calista, or "most beautiful" in Greek, we have created an alluring wine that captures her essence drawn from our most exceptional Pinot Noir vineyards.
The Coast Range
The Coast Range of California is a stretch of mountains that parallels the Pacific Ocean from Northern California south some 400 miles to Santa Barbara. This geologically young mountain system, known to native Californians as "The Great Coast Range", is comprised of crushed, creased, and folded sea floor pushed up some 30 million years ago. The maritime climate and the unique soil structure across the range create optimum vineyard conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Each region lends its distinctive terrior to our signature blend.
Calista Pinot Noir is hand harvested in the early morning and cold soaked for three days to intensify color and flavor. It's fermented in small, open-top fermenters and after a gentle pressing is aged in 100% French oak barrels, 30% new, for 14 months, adding additional layers of spice, texture, and vanilla notes.
