Fiddlestix Vineyard was planted in 1998 by Kathy Joseph, "Head Fiddle" at Fiddlehead Cellars. Located in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA in Santa Barbara County, CA. Fiddlestix Vineyard is planted to 80 acres of Pinot Noir, which benefits from morning fog, mild sunny days and cool ocean breezes. This wine is a combination of Dijon clones 667, 777, 115 and Pommard 4. It was fermented in small lots, barrel-aged in 50 percent new French oak for 18 months, racked once and bottled in April 2018.
