Philosophy of Our Wines

It was our hope was to create a wine unique to place, to this place we call Ankida…  To the soil that has settled on this one piece of earth over eons of time; to the currents of wind that blow over Chestnut Ridge to the valleys below; to the streams of moonlight that fall at this precise spot.  Mixed with our handling, our wishes, our artistry and science, we are creating wines that are a true expression of our land, our vines and us. .. All captured in a bottle for you.

Ankida Ridge Pinot Noir 2015
