Husband and wife, Nick Peay & Vanessa Wong, grow and make the wine and brother Andy Peay sells the wine and runs the business side of things. With a few minor exceptions, all wines are made from grapes grown on their 53-acre hilltop vineyard located above a river in the far north western corner of the West Sonoma Coast, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean at Sea Ranch. Today they grow 34 acres of Pinot noir, 8 acres of Syrah, 7 acres of Chardonnay, 1.8 acres of Viognier, 0.4 acres of Roussanne and 0.2 acres of Marsanne.

Peay Vineyards are certified organic farmers with a respect for Mother Nature’s ability to create an intricately complex and balanced natural environment. The soils are not tiled but seek to encourage soil and root health and aim to maintain their certifications for fish-friendly farming and integrated pest management. A bio-diesel operation is run at the vineyard and solar power at both the vineyard and winery.
The long-term health of the vineyards dictates these approaches to farming and making wine.

Tasting note:
The Sonoma Coast is made exclusively from Estate fruit and over-delivers on every level. As such it captures the signature savoury, earth, floral and fruit profile that makes the West Sonoma Coast and Peay Pinot noirs unique.
The nose on the Sonoma Coast is a knock-out with a prominent orange rind and black tea quality reminiscent of their Scallop Shelf cuvee. The mouth confirms the impression on the nose adding aromas of rose petals and dried herbs along with tart dried fruit qualities. The mid palate is medium bodied with light silky tannins and bright acidity. This is a wine where earth, fruit and floral aromas are in harmony and as a result will become even better as the wine opens up and/or ages in bottle.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Long finish.
