Anthill Farms

Ever since the three of us met while working at Williams Selyem in 2003 we have come to a simple, yet critical, understanding: the connection between the site, the farmer, and the winemaker is the all-important path to expressive and compelling wine. In many ways, what Anthill Farms represents is a series of cooperatives: between the vintners and the growers, between three co-winemakers, and between us and you. This idea leads us to a question many ask: what are each of our roles at the winery? The matter can be somewhat difficult to explain since we take a relatively fluid, dynamic approach with all of us trading hats as needed. While Anthony focuses on the vineyards, Dave on the winery, and Web on the back office, each of us is "the winemaker" and any one of us can be found pruning in the vineyard, doing punchdowns, or working the bottling line. By and large, our process does not change from year to year: we believe in a type of winemaking minimalism that promotes site and vintage expression above all else, though we also constantly work to make wines that, in the end, taste good. This goal translates to vigilance in the vineyard, intensive farming for minimal ecological impact, gentle handling from vineyard to bottle, a measured hand with oak, and, most importantly, leaving the wine alone as much as possible.

Anthill Farms Comptche Ridge Pinot Noir 2014

Anthill Farms Comptche Ridge Pinot Noir 2014

The wines from Comptche Ridge often have a long, low profile, totally beholden to low forested ridges that house the site. On gentle aeration, hints of cassia bark and rose hip unfurl, followed by warm, but fresh, red fruits. The palate echoes these aromatics but adds the detail of dewy ... more
