The Story

I grew up in a multi-generational farming family. In 1974 at the age of five, I began to follow my grandfather every day on the family farm as he tended to his ranch. Over the years he taught me a lot about farming but more importantly about life. Then one day in my late teens, he told me it was time to get of the ranch and “go chase lions.”
I never asked him what he meant by that, because something inside me already knew. It’s been over 20 years now since he passed and I have been chasing lions ever since. Because of the success of Chasing Lions Cabernet Sauvignon, Chris and Elijah wanted to add a Pinot Noir to the lineup. In chatting up their winemaker and grower friends, they found stellar fruit in Lodi.
