Inspired by the industrious small vignerons of the Northern Rhone, Model Farm began in 2013 with a leased a two-acre Syrah vineyard in the cool Petaluma Gap. We took on the ambitious task of farming the vineyard ourselves, organically and by hand. This intensive farming style has given us a better understanding of the intimate relationship between vineyard and wine, and allows for a hands-off approach in the cellar. True to tradition, we employ minimalist, old-world winemaking techniques along with whole-bunch fermentation on the reds. All wines are fermented with native yeasts, no additives or additions, and none see new oak. Since the inception of Model Farm, we have continued to seek out compelling sites of unique terroir while maintaining our core values of sustainable farming and honest winemaking.
