About Sonoma-Cutrer
Over the past 40 years, Sonoma-Cutrer has earned a reputation of excellence in craftsmanship by steadfastly choosing quality over quantity. Founded as a vineyard company before developing our own signature wines, we have always sought harmony with our environment and perfection in every step of our process. Instead of relying solely on Old World tradition or New World methods, we marry Burgundian practices with California innovation, focusing on a deep appreciation of Sonoma County terroir. Today, the popularity of our Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs serves as the motivation for us to continue creating exceptional wine. We believe the good life, like good wine, is not primarily of any one element but is a perfectly unique balance of all elements.
