We live in the bear state of California but are inspired by the wines of France. So we employ an old world approach to wine growing that favors restraint over ripeness, finesse over flamboyance. We are joined in this pursuit by Kieran Robinson, whose winemaking career has taken him from the Finger Lakes of New York to the Côte Rôtie in France to Napa Valley, where he’s worked with such luminaries as Paul Hobbs, Aaron Pott and Michel Rolland.
Sosie wines are crafted to be food-friendly: lower in alcohol with high natural acidity, nuanced flavors and firm structure. They are made in small batches with minimal intervention and the lightest touch of oak. Our aim is to craft wines that show a kinship with the wines of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Loire and the Rhone. Wines that are their sosie*. We hope you enjoy them.
