Hirsch is the pioneer vineyard on the ‘True’ Sonoma Coast. Planted from 1980 by David Hirsch, two miles from the ocean at Ft. Ross (AVA) in Sonoma County, the vineyard first became known from wines of Williams Selyem, Kistler, Littorai, and others. The on-site winery was started in 2002, and winemaker Anthony Filiberti has joined the team to craft some of the most compelling wines of this ‘grand cru’ quality vineyard. Every effort has been made to integrate the wine making with the farming to produce wines that have site typicity: rich pinot fruit married to a profound acidic complexity finished with deep, evolved natural tannins.
