About the Region:
What makes Carneros so unique and the perfect region for growing Pinot Noir? Location, location location. The temperatures are more moderate here than further north in the Napa Valley due to cool winds and fog that filter in from the San Pablo Bay, just to the south of Carneros.
To further enhance the pedigree of this wine, Humanitas sourced grapes from the reputable Truchard Vineyards, known for its unique topography of rolling hills, steep ravines and numerous valleys. Specifically, the ‘Good Earth’ tier of Humanitas Wines celebrates ideal vineyards showcasing a distinct style of a particular varietal unique to that vineyard site. There is something about the soil at Truchard Vineyard that is clearly distinct to this site and perfect for Pinot Noir. Maybe it is the soil, maybe it is the slope, maybe it is the aspect to the sun, maybe it is the hand of the grower…or a combination of all. What is clear is the wine tastes like the place. Truchard Vineyard is renowned as a shining example of all the Carneros region has to offer.
