New Jersey natives, Mark and Katie Wentworth met one another in Northern California and together shared the dream of one day owning their own winery and maintaining a vineyard together. In 2014, their dream was fulfilled with a boutique, environmentally conscious winery tucked away in the woods.
Wentworth Vineyard is a distinct and exquisite viticultural site located in California’s Ancient Redwood forest near the Mendocino Coast. Sited atop a ridge near the Pacific Ocean, Mark bought the land in 2014 with the vision to plant and grow cool climate varietals and craft world-class wines.
The terroir is exceptional, thanks largely to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean–from which the ancient soils at Wentworth Vineyard are derived. The coastal influence of cooling breezes and fog which frequently rolls into the valley beneath the vineyard throughout the growing season contribute a great deal as well. Besides being breathtakingly beautiful, the site is ideal for cool-climate expressions of certain great varietals, especially Pinot Noir.

Alluring, well-developed aromas and rich, layered flavors help this full-bodied wine stand out from the crowd. It layers dark cherry and forest floor aromas and spiced plum and rosemary flavors on a broad and mouth-filling texture.

“The 2021 Pinot Noir The South Slope Vineyard is a classic Steven Hansel wine. A rush of dark cherry, plum lavender, rose petal and licorice are all dialed up. This boisterous, exuberant Pinot Noir has a ton of character. Plush contours wrap it all together in style. The 2021 will be nearly impossible to resist on release. What a knock-out!” -Vinous
Once again dialing up fruit from 1000-1500ft in elevation in the Dundee Hills, Chad’s 2021 is juicy, laser focused and roaring out of the gates. Chad tells me that similar wines (very similar wines) off this vineyard are raising their prices up to $55/bottle from $45 this year due to 2020’s lost year. But where most people are raising prices to recoup last year’s losses, the CHAD Pinot Noir price is somehow lower. A true gift from our favorite winemaker.
