Etude Wines was established 1982, when founding winemaker Tony Soter set his sights on the cool-climate Carneros region in the pursuit of producing world class Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir offers intricate flavor profiles, many of which are unique to its growing region. Beyond Carneros, Etude sources fruit from the Central Coast region of California, Oregon, and even New Zealand. This diversity offers guests the opportunity to see the world though the lens of Pinot Noir. The flavors, aromas, and textures are a direct impact of the terroirs on which the grapes are grown.
Etude specializes in a selection of white and two classic red varietals—Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.
