From the producer: This head-trained vineyard sits smack dab in the middle of the Russian River Valley, on the plains that make up the northwestern outskirts of Santa Rosa. The faded brown soils, known as Huichica loam, offer an excellent mix of low fertility and rapid drainage. Most notable about the site, however, is the age of the vines: we don’t know the exact age, but the best indication is that they were planted in the early 1940s, making it some of the oldest producing Chardonnay in the state.

Anthill Farms has a special place here at Flatiron. They are one of the producers that inspired us to open a shop on the west coast. They've long been a lynch pin of our New York domestic section, so it seemed crazy to be so far away from where they and the rest of the US’s best wines are grown and made. In fact our first ever SF newsletter featured Anthill farms way back in 2016. Since then the wine has only gotten better as the Pinots below will attest to.

David Low, Anthony Filiberti and Webster Marquez met working at Williams Selyem during the wineries golden age. They hit the road after harvest ended in 2003 at and toured wineries in Oregon's Willamette Valley. The idea of forming their own winery hatched on that trip. The trio’s goal is to craft Pinot Noirs that express the growing site and the characteristics of the vintage, and above all else, taste great. They disdain the riper style of Pinot Noir that California is known for. They are looking more for freshness, balance and an elegance of texture.

To achieve their goals they work with some of the best growers in the state that are also working biodynamically. Some whole clusters are included in the winemaking, depending on the vintage and the vineyard. New oak is limited to about 30%. Racking, fining and filtering is avoided. The sites they work with are located in some of the coolest spots throughout Mendocino and Sonoma counties, with optimal sun exposure allowing for ideal ripeness while still retaining acidity.

The Pinot Noirs that Anthill produces are also one of the few Northern California wineries that can easily thread the line between “classic” and “natural”. They are elegant and terroir transparent and therefore satisfy many lovers of restrained Pinot (we hesitate to say “Burgundian”) but you’ll find them next to Pet Nats and Orange wines on the hippest natural wine lists as well.
