Etude Wines


No grape expresses the place it’s grown better than Pinot Noir. That’s why we produce Pinot Noir from so many different places; to showcase its transparency and diversity. We’ve created a “Study of Pinot Noir” to guide you through its many elegant expressions. There’s no better way to understand the French concept of terroir. Or the meaning of étude.

Winemaker Jon Priest strongly believes and lives the Etude philosophy that superior grape growing in the vineyard diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in authentic varietal expression. We invite you to visit us and enjoy our critically acclaimed wines including our limited production single vineyard Chardonnay, Pinot Noirs, and Cabernet Sauvignons. Appointments encouraged, but not required for a tasting at our bar or on our relaxing patio (weather permitting).

Tasting room open daily 10am-4:30pm.
