Our Cuvée Constantin is a nod to the original Flâneur. When Charles Baudelaire first wrote about the Flâneur, the connoiseur of life, Constantin Guy was his inspiration. Constantin was a stroller, observer and painter of the crowds and the streets of Paris in the mid-19th century.  Only 163 Cases Produced

Vineyard Notes
40% La Belle Promenade Vineyard Chehalem Mountains AVA | 700-820' Elevation | Northeastern/Southwestern Exposure | Volcanic Soils (Jory/Nekia) Planted to Mixed Pinot Noir Clones | Dry farmed Using Organic Principles - La Belle Promenade is comprised of 33 acres of volcanic soils, with the western portion of the site consisting of a thick layer of fractured basalt. The vineyard was planted in 2014 to 26 acres of Pinot Noir, 5 acres of Chardonnay and 2 acres of Pinot Meunier. Due in part to its high elevation, this site allows for great diversity in concert with our other estate vineyard. 60% Kindred Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills AVA | 450' Elevation | Southeastern Exposure | Volcanic/Decomposed Basalt Soils | Planted to Mixed Clones - This site is planted row-by-row to a range of clones, collected by its owner, Craig Williams, throughout his years working in the California wine industry.The mixed clones co-harvested and co-fermented and produce exceptional complexity, layers and tension in the resulting finished wines.
