For over two decades, we have been on a journey—one that started with 50 cases of Syrah vinified in a garage in sunny Los Angeles. A short time later, we marched steadily northward toward a vision of cooler vineyard sites and the complex, aromatic wines they can express. Today, under the direction of Red Car’s viticulturist, Greg Adams, and winemaker, Tanner Scheer, we farm five dramatic ridge-top vineyards in Occidental, Sebastopol, Freestone and Cazadero. This rugged terrain’s coastal influence—where the Pacific fog filters in daily through giant redwoods until warm sunshine sends it back out to the sea—provides perfect growing conditions for our hallmark style: perfumed aromatics, bright fruit, crisp texture and uplifting acidity.
An early leader in the formation of the proposed West Sonoma Coast AVA, we are passionately committed to producing wines of purity and focus that express the authentic varietal character and terroir of each unique coastal vineyard site. At our core,
we are a small, independent farming operation committed to conservation and sustainability.
At Red Car, we believe that we are stewards of the land—dedicated to being environmentally and socially responsible to our community. To us, sustainability goes beyond farming practices in our vineyards; it's who we are. Our values reflect those of a limited-production winery and small team inspired by the topography and environment where we grow our cool-climate wines. We appreciate that our wines speak directly from the soil and maritime climate and with that, we find it our mission to be environmentally and socially aware.
