Borgo Pass VIneyard
The most magical and improbable of the vineyards we partner with, this is where we get 25 year old alpine Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Nestled in the coast range near Alpine, this is a U-pick vineyard and that’s exactly what we do with a band of friends and family each harvest.

The largest source of fruit for us, our relationship with Dag Sundby and Dan Rinke goes back to 2011 when they first grafted Gamay, Melon and Cabernet Franc for us. Additionally, we source Pinot Noir from here which completes the Rhinestones blend along with their Gamay. Certified Biodynamic and ideally situated to deliver the expression of Willamette Valley wine we strive for, Johan fruit is the core of the cellar.
