Brand Summary

Named after the massive granite sculpture that dominates the estate, the 400-500 cases of Seven Stones wine produced each vintage is the end result of the meticulous efforts of its talented vineyard and winemaking team — famed winemaker Aaron Pott and Piña Vineyard Management. Together they produce a Cabernet Sauvignon wine of striking complexity, deep concentration, and substantial structure, garnering consistent praise from the wine press, with ratings as high as 99+ over the years. Due to the elevation, the vineyards receive the moderating effects of the fog which typically burns off in the summer by mid to late morning. The wine is sold through a direct-to-consumer distribution channel at $210 per bottle, offering an attractive income flow.
