It is difficult to make Pinot Noir inexpensively, especially if your goal is world-class Pinot Noir. It is capital-intensive, the horizons are long and the results
can be unpredictable. We knew that going in. Our vision for CIRQ first took shape several
years ago when we discovered what we consider to be the best sites in the best region for Pinot Noir, the Russian River Valley. We made the commitment at that time to pour all our resources into developing these sites. We’ve done this with one goal in mind: to provide enthusiasts with wines of uncommon breeding that delight their senses and connect them to these special places.
