Quick Facts

This is intensely serious stuff, yet gracious and mineral-laced, but above all it's stamped by Gideon Beinstock's firm belief that Sierra Foothills was the place. He was right!

The Wine’s Story

The name says it all, doesn’t it? This site generally produce Clos Saron’s signature wine, the Home Vineyard Pinot Noir. Gideon’s interest in Pinot Noir is related to its unsurpassed ability to capture and express the essence of its place of origin. There is an old saying, that a good Pinot expresses its varietal, whereas a great one expresses its terroir… You will certainly find Clos Saron’s Pinots distinctly different from their Burgundy, Russian River, Central Coast, and Oregon relatives, while being as true to their varietal as any. We’re seriously excited to be able to offer these rare gems to Swedish discerning Pinot Noir connoisseurs.
