Weather is the force that determines the fate of a grapevine more directly than any other. It was the weather that created the soils the grapes grow in and it’s the Weather that dictates the vintage.
Weather Wines, conceived by Vintner, John Anthony Truchard, expresses the stories of unique microclimates within California’s most renowned cool-climate regions. Each Weather bottling is a different expression of pinot noir unmistakably sculpted by the elements at its source.
Few grapes are more exquisitely sensitive to their environment than Burgundian varietals. Pinot noir grows best in cool-climate terroirs where conditions align in a delicate balance: soil types, sun, shade, heat, cold, precipitation, and humidity in optimal measure. The slight variation of even one element shifts the ethereal beauty of these fragile, thin-skinned grapes, creating wines with astounding individualism and character.
Weather Wines is part of the grower series of brands within John Anthony Family of Wines, celebrating the diversity of environments and vineyard sites that produce them. Each release of Weather Wines is a singular moment in time and place—no two can ever be the same.
