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: 
Frediani Vineyard:
“This year we are taking our Valdiguié back to its roots in the US, when Valdiguié was known as ‘Napa Gamay’. The Frediani Vineyard is located in Calistoga, CA on the north end of the Napa Valley where it has been cared for by Jim Frediani and his father before him since the early 1900s. We've taken to calling this wine our "Napa Napa Gamay." Dry-farmed for over 60 years, the Bale clay loam soils and hot day time temperatures in this vineyard produce concentrated, lush fruit.”

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.”
