Welcome to Carlisle Winery & Vineyards! We are a small Sonoma County
winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated
Zinfandels and red Rhone varieties (Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Petite
Sirah). We have also recently added our first whites, two blends from historic, old-vine vineyards plus Sonoma County's first ever Grüner Veltliner. While we like our wines to be bold and intensely flavored,
each reflecting its vintage and vineyard, we also
strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and nuance. Our goal is always the same - grow and source outstanding fruit, do as little as possible to it, and bottle outstanding, pleasurable wine at the fairest price possible..
We hope you enjoy our Web site. If you have any questions,
please don't hesitate to contact us.
