a sense of place and a sense of purpose
Inspired by a small family property in the South of France, La Pitchoune means “the little one.” The name speaks to small production, small lots, and the idea that our small size is our greatest asset. At La Pitchoune, we prize the special care we can apply to our craft. By combining passion, art and science, we ensure that each blend is expressed to its fullest potential.
La Pitchoune is the realization of a dream that began in 2005. The vision? To create elegant, well-balanced wines pairing select Sonoma Coast grapes with French oak barrels for a distinctive blend with the discerning palate in mind.
Even the best fruit, the most painstaking process and the deepest passion require something more to make magic. Ours comes in the form of our winemaker and partner, Andrew Berge.
In a convergence of good fortune, specific circumstance and a genuine meeting of the minds, Andrew’s desire to create winning wines without restraint met our dream to create something truly extraordinary.
Andrew’s deep agricultural knowledge in combination with his vast international experience of crafting wines in various regions around the world provides us with ability to produce wines with a lasting impression.
