Red Car was first imagined during a trip to the coastal mountains of western Sonoma County. There was a clear sense that this was the place where Red Car should settle, a place to call home. That morning’s sights and smells of the Pacific fog mixed with the giant redwoods as the sunshine pushed it back out to sea inspired in the founders a harmony with nature. They felt connected to the hum of the land and couldn’t wait to express its uniqueness in their wines. The inaugural vintage for Red Car was 2000 and since then they have achieved soaring heights for their stunning cool weather wines.
Red Car has expanded and subsequently contracted the number of vineyards they work with over the years, finding their own tastes changings and choosing to focus on sites where they can manage the farming for themselves. The estate vineyard is cooled off by the coastal fog creeping in from the near-by Pacific Ocean and sits high up in the Coastal Range hills.
