Bill and Cindy Wenzlau purchased 100 acres, but only planted 12 ½ of them (8½ to Pinot & 4 to Chardonnay). For 2 decades they fantasized about owning their own vineyard. But it was not until their sommelier son Tommy came back from a trip to France that he persuaded his family to look for land. They scoured California and came across this gorgeous property in the Santa Rita Hills and the rest as they say was history and the Wenzlau Vineyard was born! The first vintages were made by Paul Lato and as of 2012 Justin Willett (Tyler) has been at the helm of this great winery.

Parker Review 93 Points: “Also superb, the 2012 Wenzlau Pinot Noir Estate saw 20% whole clusters during fermentation and spent 16 months in 35% new French oak. It’s another classic red that has plenty of ripe berry fruits, underbrush, forest floor and crushed flowers to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and lively feel on the palate. It too should shine for 3-4 years, if not longer. These impressive efforts are made by Justin Willett (of Tyler). The focus here is on their estate vintage, which was planted in 2007.”
