THE VINEYARDS

Today, vines from four great clones – the coveted Swan, 115, 828, and 667 – grace this remote and beautiful landscape. Dry farmed and guided by organic principles, a small harvest comes together each year for a limited production and a rare few wines become Comptche Ridge. Taste one of these wines and you’ll soon realize, in this family there is no line between love of land and a longing to make great wines.

THE WINEMAKERS

Years ago, an affinity was formed between the winemakers of Anthill Farms wines and Comptche Ridge when Anthony, Webster and Dave first approached the Weir brothers as impassioned winemakers looking to purchase fruit. As the relationship grew, they discovered a shared philosophy when it came to farming and winemaking—namely, using a light, deft hand to allow the essence of the fruit to emerge. So when the Weir brothers set out to create a label of their own, choosing who would help craft their wine was the easiest decision in the world. Now the Anthony Filiberti, Webster Marquez and David Low are bringing their expertise and talent to Comptche Ridge wine. And the results speak for themselves—Burghound.com recently gave the wine 90 points and a rating of “Outstanding.”
