Mossback Pinot Noir Central Coast 2013

Owners John and Lane Giguiere have been growing grapes and making wine for more than 25 years in the Dunnigan Hills of California. After selling their family’s company, R.H. Philips, they started a new venture in 2005 and named it Crew, in honor of the many staff members who left Phillips to join Crew. Mossback is an old fashioned term for farmer, which references the Giguiere’s long family history of farming, as well as the moss covered rocks, tree trunks and end posts prevalent in the cool Russian River Valley of California. Dan Cederquist is the winemaker and Lacey Steffey is the co-winemaker. [+]
