Little All-Americans: Buy My Wine!

Everyone knows of the established Pinot Noir specialists such as Kosta Browne, J. Rochioli, and Ponzi Vineyards, or iconic wineries such as The Eyrie Vineyards, Calera Wine Co., and Merry Edwards, but what about the little guys, the boutique producers with little or no marketing budget, yet turn out small lots of original, hand-crafted Pinot Noir wines. These wineries need your support for they have very little outlet for representation or notoriety. Distributors treat them like pariahs, seeing little profit in extending a hand to bring their wines to the marketplace. To be honest, some of these tiny producers enter the wine business with little or no experience in marketing. The fact is, Pinot Noir is a lot easier to make than to sell. In the pages of this issue, I have brought to your attention a number of these small-scale, independent producers. Here is a list of wineries that want your business and deserve your attention. There are many more to be discovered.
