A waypoint is the identifying intersection between latitude and longitude on a GPS, the specific place where the two coordinates meet. It is unique and unambiguous, a virtual fingerprint on the ground. In the case of wine, it also takes on the added implication of pinpointing the attributes of a particular vineyard. As all wine great and small is born somewhere, it is of critical importance that somewhere is special.

It also helps to have dedicated growers and winemakers with an eye for the right dirt. Working with guys like Andy Beckstoffer on the vineyard side and Tim Milos in the cellar, we're fortunate to be able to include serious talent in the conversation of making great wine. And, yes, we've received some good press. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate was our biggest point haul, but others have had nice things to say too (including our demanding clientele). Frankly, we'll take it with appreciation.

These wines are reflections of our promise to deliver 'great stuff,' and they have not come about by accident. It starts with fantastic vineyards and folks who know how to farm the right way - and making an awful lot of decisions from there - but ultimately it's more about letting the wines speak for themselves than accessorizing with a batch of winemaking tricks. Single-vineyard wines need to stand on their own merit. You simply can't go wrong here.
