Waits-Mast Family Cellars was founded by Brian Mast and Jennifer Waits in 2005. Before they started to make wine, they were passionate wine consumers, spending many weekends exploring small wineries all over California and beyond. After years of research in books and afield, they crafted their first barrel of Pinot Noir in 2005. Pleased with the results, they continued the following year. Their shift from wine geeks to winemakers quickly eschewed Waits-Mast to cult-like status in the world of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. With too many accolades to name, the wines precede themselves.
