What are designated vineyard blocks but arbitrary lines in the sand, drawn for the convenience of tractors? What happens when the lines begin to blur, when other more ancient realities begin to assert themselves - layers of geologic and organic evolution, patterns of wind and sun, all running crosswise and sideways to your neat grid of lines and squares? When the vines finally discover those underlying realities, and bring them forth into wine, then it’s time to go put something new in the bottle. For Spring 2021 we are spotlighting our 2nd generation winemaker's, Ben Casteel, interpretation of terroir at Bethel Heights Vineyard.  This limited production series offers 3 Pinot noirs and 1 chardonnay.  We look forward to sharing these rarely opened wines from the 15 vintage with our friends for the rest of of Spring 2021.

The Shallows:
Perched on a rocky bench with only a slight skim of soil over bedrock, vines planted in The Shallows tind their foothold deep in the interstices between basalt boulders.  Their tenacity yields wines of purity, subtlety and elegance.

The Cauldron:Protected from the wind, basking in warmth, feasting on deep soil tipped into the pot from the rocky slopes above, the vines of The Cauldron are the pampered children of Bethel Heights. In return, they give us tender, juicy, exuberant wines.

The Currents: There is a certain place on the lower west side of our vineyard where subtle fluctuations of cool and warm air currents flow through the vines.  We feel them when we walk there in the summer, as if we were stepping into the sea, and we can taste them in this wine.

The High Wire: The High Wire was long disparaged as the ugly duckling of the vineyard.  It stubbornly resisted all attempts to graft it over or re-train it into submission, and the ugly duckling ultimately grew into the regal long-necked swan that it was meant to be. 96 Pts, The Wine Advocate (the only wine from the set submitted for review)
