Antonio Galloni "The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is endowed with terrific depth in this vintage. Beautifully expressive and resonant, the 2016 offers notable richness in its succulent red cherry, plum and spice nuances. This open-knit, juicy Pinot will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is a fabulous appellation-level Pinot."
Winemaker "This appellation is widely described as “sprawling” as it encompasses half or more of the county. Our fruit comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation: the low coast, west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Petaluma Gap; and the high coast, the first or second ridge inland from the ocean farther to the north. These sites are united by the direct influence of the Pacific‘s cool, marine air, delaying ripening well into October."
Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016
Anthill Farms was launched in 2004 by partners Webster Marquez, David Low and Anthony Filiberti who all previously worked at Williams Selyem. The trio are deeply committed to producing handcrafted, high quality, cool climate single vineyard Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chardonnay sourced from vineyards in Northern California.
Anthony is the lead winemaker and was raised in Sonoma County. He apprenticed at Oregon’s Bergström which farms without the use of herbicides, pesticides, insecticides or systemic chemicals. They go a step further by composting and treating with homeopathic herbal and mineral teas, rather than using synthetic fertilizers. Understandably, Anthony is a non-interventionist winemaker, committed to gentle handling of grapes from crushing to bottling which is clearly evident - the attention to detail produces wines of magical, unforced purity.
Their operation has grown from a mere 8.5 barrels per year to almost 1,800 cases. This still equates to a tiny operation particularly when the trio produce a string of single vineyard creations, effortlessly expressing the diverse terroirs of the Sonoma Coast and Mendocino County. Most wines are produced in minuscule quantities and are offered via their mailing list members in spring. Outside of their mailing list, a small amount of wine is released every year to local restaurants, wine shops and a tiny amount is exported (thank the Lord!)
