Winestyr Review

This single vineyard Pinot Noir is as drinkable as it is intriguing. This wine has quite a bit of aging potential and develops beautifully as it gets more air. I recommend at least a two hour decant to let this wine show its best. Balanced, distinguished, and well made, this is Friedeman's flagship Pinot Noir in what is a wonderfully crafted lineup of wines. 94 points Wine Enthusiast

What We Love

  • Friedeman's flagship red wine

The Lancel Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir from Friedeman Wines is a wonderful wine for any Pinot Noir lover


Friedeman Wines is a micro-producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are immensely proud to be the exclusive outlet to secure his wines.


Originally from the Chicago area themselves, the Friedemans' story behind their foray into winemaking epitomizes those we had in mind when we started Winestyr. Their first production, only 200 cases a handful of years ago, took place more or less out of a garage, and was so well received that it sold out to local residents before it could even be introduced to the outside public. They've since produced several more vintages, each a slightly larger production than the last (though still very small productions), and have continued to grow their craft business organically. This is the winery you want to hear about on a trip to wine country - the one only the locals know about and love because of its great product and fantastic people.

    Earthy, smooth pinot noir that embodied everything you would expect from a glass of pinot.
