Years ago, a few Marin county friends got together and started an informal wine tasting group focused on discovering and enjoying great wine. Eventually, the team decided to produce their own wines of exceptional quality. We brought on award-winning Sonoma winemaker Chris Taddei to develop our 2012 vintage and the vision became a reality.
The Wines: Geometry wines are sourced from the finest grapes available in the Bennett Valley AVA of Sonoma. While we now produce Syrah, Grenache, and Rose, our focus is on Syrah and Syrah blends; Rhone varietals that have intensity, depth and balance. The wines are made in small quantities, with the direct involvement and labor of the whole team at every point in the winemaking process.
All of our wines are aged in new French and Hungarian oak barrels, including Taransaud, Vicard and Damay. We evaluate each barrel of wine biweekly, allowing the wines to dictate to us how they are treated in terms of racking, barrel stirring, and bottling. Our approach to winemaking has remained constant since our first vintage. We inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem. We discard every one that doesn’t meet our standards; typically sacrificing six to eight percent of our fruit during this process. From that stage on, every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures.
Now, after long and careful cultivation, we are grateful for a result we feel is truly spectacular. We hope you will too!
