Their wines are tended, harvested and crafted by hand according to winemaker Munn. “We don’t interfere. We don’t use a single pump. We believe this brings out elegant and complex expressions of Pinot Noir and Riesling.”

Martin’s Lane’s first vintage was in 2014 when they produced 3000 cases. Three Pinot Noir, two Riesling. In 2015 four Pinot Noir were produced and a maximum of 400 cases per varietal.

The Pinot Noir is of a single vineyard with potential for a single block. Aged in barrels for 17 months in 90% French oak, 10% Austrian. No U.S. oak is used. The toast is medium and occasionally low. The barrels are a super fine grain and well seasoned, sourced from only five or six cooperages. 75% of the barrels come from a single cooperage with 25% being new. The barrels are kept for four years before being replaced.

The wine is naturally made, not natural wine. Grown organically, no pesticides or herbicides are used. Limited intervention. Unlined concrete is used in the fermentation process for the red wines, white wines using stainless steel and concrete. The juice travels strictly by gravity with five movements to the bottling.
