Withers is a recent project started by long time wine enthusiast and collector, Andrew Tow. He has partnered up with David Low as his winemaker, cofounder of our beloved Anthill Farms. The premise of Withers is to create wines from cool-climate sites through Anderson Valley and Sonoma Coast. Inspiration is drawn from many of the best French wine regions, making for complex, balanced wines, while ultimately making something that could be shared proudly with friends. Withers creates single vineyard expressions and blended wines, all expressing a sense of place. “Withers” is an equestrian term for horses and an ode to Andrew’s wife’s passion for horses, as can be seen displayed on all their wine labels.
Peters Vineyard comprises older vines, almost 30 years in age. The site can be found just southwest of Sebastopol, a stone’s throw from the Pacific. Due to its coastal proximity, the Chardonnay benefits from cool fogs and ocean breezes making for a powerful and saline-forward wine not unlike Chablis.
