Paul and Kathryn Sloan are making low-input, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from organically farmed 4 x 4 and 4 x meter vineyards that only they have planted and currently farm. First, leasing back the original properties and then finally grasping the goal of being able to buy a property- they created their own dream come true. Now they are crafting wines in their own bricks-and-mortar winemaking facility on a historic property they bought in Sebastopol. After more than twenty years of growing grapes with Swiss-watch precision, the Sloan’s have become an “instant” success.
Small Vines Wines produce 100% Grower-Produced, vineyard designate (and AVA) Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and a Rosé of Pinot Noir - made entirely from high-density, estate vineyards planted and farmed organically by the Sloans. These wines are available direct from the winery at www.smallvines.com or at select high-end retail and restaurants throughout the Nation.
