Cordant Embarking on our mission to engulf Cordant in Pinot Noir, we explored many roads less travelled. But we found ourselves surrounded by so much more. To say we stumbled upon things we couldn't say “no” to is an understatement. With a base idea and an open mind we were introduced to exceptional vineyards of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and more, all up and down the California Central Coast. The objective then became acquainting ourselves with the unique sites that have the most to say, and to do our best to tell their story. Nelle Some wines are meant to be blended. In fact, an enjoyable aspect of winemaking is the experimentation requisite with blending trials that leads to the finished product, obsessing over just the right amount of this and that. With Nelle our focus is to start with great vineyard sources, and to create a resulting wine that is even better than the individual vineyard sources, whether through co-fermentation or blending.
