Riesling, Pinot Noir
Joleté comes from our friends at Le Cadeau and Aubichon winery in Oregon. They are a celebration of life’s relationships; the happy gatherings. These hand-crafted, small production wines are grown in meticulously farmed vineyards found in the finest wine regions of Oregon and California.
After gaining his degree in soil science from University of Minnesota, winemaker Steve Ryan had the privilege of working as head winemaker of Martinelli in the mid-90s. Having recently headed-up the custom crush facility “Rack & Riddle”, he is now focused on biodynamic research in Hopland, CA while making small-production cuvees in California and Oregon, including the highly regarded Le Cadeau “Côte Est” Pinot Noir.
