Mike and his team have been farming and providing ultra premium pinot noir for our wine program since 2003. 

Mike’s team has also developed vineyards to our standards to ensure our fruits characteristic reach its highest potential.

Scott Rich, Talisman Wine


Mike and his team developed our vineyard in 2007, advising us on sustainability practices, implementing dry farming techniques, and meticulously hand-cultivating vines for an intense, ultra premium Cabernet Sauvignon.

We have appreciated and admired Mike’s commitment to staying on top of developments in viticulture, and changing conditions in the environment, to ensure that his crew is always on the leading edge. For a small brand like ours, following best practices ensures that we stay competitive with bigger producers.

Mike’s easy collaboration with our winemakers, buyers, and others makes working with him a breeze. He is unfailingly responsive when things come up, and thoughtful in problem-solving, and his crews emulate his friendly spirit of cooperation.
