For the past six years, our winemaker Graham Weerts has spent the majority of his
time and considerable talents crafting exquisite Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Working closely with key members of his viticultural team, Graham set out to highlight the Cabernet-family varieties – both white and
red – that reflect the innate character and authenticity of this amazing valley.
Everyday people making extraordinary wines.
These days, a “farrier” is a specialist in equine hoof care. But at
one point in history, a farrier was for all intents and purposes a blacksmith. While
a farrier would certainly have forged horseshoes and fitted them with a great deal
of expertise, he would also have forged andirons for fireplaces, wrought-iron gates,
agricultural tools like hay hooks, and more. He was a farmer, a tradesman and a
master of his craft.
Like the Alexander Valley, Farrier wines are full of character. Mindful of their
regional roots, these releases pay respect to traditional blends while simultaneously
pursuing something completely different and unique.
