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.

Vinous 95 Points: The Wenzlau Pinot Noir The Perch opens with striking aromatics. Perfumed, textured and yet also remarkably polished for such an intense, ripe wine, the Perch has it all. Readers who can find the Perch should not hesitate, as it is a total knockout. The Perch captures the intensity of this site and year, but with tons of supporting minerality giving the wine its feel and overall shape.
