ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
“Birdhorse represents a vision for the future of California winemaking, a vision anchored in a passion for diversification. We strive to showcase regions, varietals, and humans that have long had a presence in this industry but have yet to been celebrated by many of its constituents. We are driven by intellectual curiosity, transparency, science, and data, but most importantly an ardor for delicious wines and sharing them with the wider drinking public.”

ABOUT THE VINEYARDS: 
CCOF certified Vista Luna vineyard sits in the heart of the Borden Ranch AVA and is farmed by Markus Bokisch, a passionate advocate and farmer of Iberian varieties in CA. Gravelly, Redding clay-loam soils and hot summer heat give rise to dense flavors in these 25-year-old vines.

ABOUT THE LABEL:
“The Name -  Birdhorse is intended to evoke a sense of adventure and whimsey, rooted in the familiar - the same feeling we hope to express through each of our wines. It is a thing you can conjure in your mind’s eye, a faint outline, but requires an inquisitive and open mind to fill in the details. That is Birdhorse: a desire for understanding, grounded by our own experience and perception, fueled by our imagination.”
