Embarking on our mission to engulf Cordant in Pinot Noir, we explored many roads less travelled. But we found ourselves surrounded by so much more. To say we stumbled upon things we couldn't say “no” to is an understatement.
Cordant | Nelle Winery
With a base idea and an open mind we were introduced to exceptional vineyards of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and more, all up and down the California Central Coast. The objective then became acquainting ourselves with the unique sites that have the most to say, and to do our best to tell their story.
This approach can only excel if we pay close attention to, and learn to work in harmony with these premium locations. In the cellar this same philosophy of “keeping an open mind” crosses over, where our game plan is simple and minimalist. When you pay attention to the grapes, they tell you what they need. It’s never the other way around.
