Variety: Chardonnay

John and Phoebe Raytek have come into their own in northern California. The family keeps busy amidst their many responsibilities. Though they do not own any vineyards, Phoebe, as the Ceritas farmer, still spends much of her time at their many sites, some of them monopole vineyards, and forming relationships with the growers who own them. There is an immense focus on organic and sustainable farming methods. John is the winemaker of Ceritas, spending much of his time in the cellar and in the vineyards. The couple prides themselves as students, and the vineyards their teachers; it is their job to listen and learn from each site. They believe, “it is more important to know what not to do, than what to do,” effectively summarizing the belief of allowing the wine to speak for itself. The grapes are sourced from the Santa Cruz Mountains and West Sonoma Coast for their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This is one of the oldest historic vineyard sites on the Sonoma Coast. It boasts a unique location being above the fog line where it takes on sunlight balanced with cool ocean breezes. Even though this site was around during conventional farming of the 1980s, Charles Heintz has been able to hold its ground. The old vines yield slow-ripening fruit that reward patience. This site shows a major contrast to their other Chardonnays, showcasing a hefty minerality and concentration. They currently share this vineyard with Littorai. Cellar work is kept to a bare minimum.
