California Pinot Noir
no coincidence pinot noir
why we made
It has been said by many that in life there is no such thing as a coincidence. In the case of Gestalt, it is no coincidence that we combined three things we love, beautifully hand crafted shotguns, art, and exceptional wine.
making the label
For the first and second of these loves we chose to use a shotgun to create art. We filled empty wine bottles with paint, attached them to a twenty-four by thirty-inch canvas and shot them with a vintage Belgian Browning twelve-gauge shotgun. The result is the labels that adorn our inaugural member release.
The greatest thing happens when you don’t
have rules when asked to make wine for
Gestalt. We aren’t forced to make the same
wine from the same vineyard every year. We
are able to get what we believe to get the best
varietal, from the best appellation depending
on the year and its climates.
Our Pinot comes from a special vineyard in the Santa Cruz mountains. The vineyard is nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains, above the Pacific Ocean, and is notorious for its foggy mornings and nights. The Pinot Noir worked extremely hard to ripen leading to a true representation of the Pinot Noir grape without any manipulation.
