excellence begins with passion

a sense of place and a sense of purpose

La Pitchoune

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.

2012 pinot noir

The 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a perfect representation of what a La Pitchoune wine should be; elegant, restrained, and yet full of flavor.  It is also an excellent reflection of its origin.  The soil, the fog, and the influence of the cool ocean air make an impression in the glass.  Upon the first sip, the superb viscosity will not go unnoticed.  Notes of black cherries, orange blossoms, and the suggestion of black tea soon follow, and continue to tempt the senses.  The finish is deliciously spicy, with a distinct characteristic of freshly ground black pepper. While this wine is more than happy to stand up on its own, pairing it with some food will set the tone and enhance any meal.  Give it a whirl with your favorite halibut, mushroom pasta, or beef tenderloin with a red wine cognac sauce.
