In an effort to produce the highest quality, terroir-driven wines possible, father and daughter Lloyd Messer and Dana Brown planted their vineyard atop 442 acres of solid calcareous rock reaching 1,700 feet above sea level. It is a labor of love to cultivate fruit on this challenging land, but the reward is immediately apparent when savoring the award-winning results. Lloyd passed on in 2006, but Dana continues to advance their vision as Calcareous consistently produces a collection of world-class Rhône and Bordeaux wines that speak with an undeniable sense of place.
You are invited to take in the sweeping panoramic views from this secluded spot, and experience the breathtaking beauty of Calcareous for yourself. Wine tasting is offered from 10:00am - 4:00pm, and a seasonal menu of artisan lunch items is available for pairing from 10:30am to 4:30pm daily. To enjoy a more intimate, behind-the-scenes look at Calcareous, a variety of elevated, private tasting experiences are also offered throughout the year. Please make reservations when planning your visit.
