We use traditional methods to craft limited-production Pinot Noir and Syrah from the Sonoma Coast and Santa Cruz Mountain appellations. Our winemaker and proprietor, Scott Sisemore, brings his drive, experience, and deep knowledge of red wine production to shape the wines from grape harvest to bottling.

May, 2014: SF Chronicle wine editor, Jon Bonné, takes a look at Rosé. Here's what he has to say about the Waxwing "Spring Hill Vineyard" Pinot Noir Rosé: "From Karen and Chris London's site just west of Petaluma, this is versatile as can be, with a mint-leaf freshness, peach skin and bright raspberry. A lot of stuffing for a pink Pinot." Find the full article here.

sólosyrah has published a glowing review of our 2012 Syrahs. Check it out here.
Our 2012 "Spring Hill Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was reviewed in the PinotReport (93 pts): Medium ruby color; rich, ripe herbal cherry aromas; deep, bright, red cherry flavors with forest floor notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, earthy, rich Pinot that is drinking well now.
