In 2003, Anthony Filberti, David Low and Webster Marquez all met one another while working at Williams Selyem, the famed Sonoma winery best known for their world-class Pinot Noir. They said that watching one another scurrying to get everything done in the winery reminded them of worker ants, a name that stuck when the trio teamed up the following year to start their own small lot, biodynamic project. Five years after their inaugural vintage, the three worker ants received Food & Wine Magazine’s ‘Most Promising Winery’. A year later, the Wall Street Journal labeled them as “The Rock Stars of Pinot Noir.” All of this while the three guys were all in their 20’s and still all with full-time jobs at other wineries.
Influenced by the enchanted coastal breezes of the Petaluma Gap, the 2017 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir is both vibrant, passionate example of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. It encompasses everything one looks for in Pinot: a floral bouquet followed up with bright red fruits, a hint of spice and a long and memorable finish. Due to the cool, coastal climate, the trio leave the grapes on the vine until mid-October, balancing ripe fruit with a gorgeous natural acidity. Don’t take my word for it though. Read the rave below Antonio Galloni of Vinous gave the wine along with his 92-point score. This is quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir at just $36/btl.

2017 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a gorgeous wine that captures all the best of the Anthill Farms style. Pliant and generous, with tons of bright and saline energy, the 2017 is a wonderfully complete wine. Freshly cut flowers, chalk, mint and white pepper give the 2017 its striking freshness and nuance. This is such a pretty wine in its peer group. In a word: superb. -92 Points, Antonio Galloni Vinous
This is quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir!
