A waypoint is an intermediate point or place on a route or line of travel. In modern terms, it most often refers to coordinates that specify one’s position on the globe. In the wine world, one’s waypoint tells a unique story of time and place in the glass. Waypoint was born out of the idea of spotlighting singlevineyard properties, throughout California, to highlight the unique terroir and characteristics of each of these singular plots of dirt. Between Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, Waypoint was one of the first brands in California to place an emphasis on sourcing fruit from one specific locale and giving it the credit it was due.
