About Two Pisces Vineyards

Michael Ridgeway had a vision in 2001 when he first set his eyes on the property that is now “Two Pisces Vineyard.” In September of 2004, the first grapes were harvested from the young vineyard. Dan Goldfield was chosen as winemaker. The influence of the Pacific Ocean and the Northern California coastal breezes have proven to be perfect for the grapes grown at this site. Ridgeway Two Pisces Vineyard, 2004 Pinot Noir was released in August of 2006 and sold out in just four months!

Cool, foggy mornings and evenings are two key elements for growing premium Pinot Noir grapes. The climate and the soils of the Sonoma Coast make it an ideal location for producing superior quality Pinot Noir wine. The summer days may be warm, but the coastal breezes temper the heat each evening and the thin-skinned pinot noir grapes are “kissed by the breath of the sea.” The long growing season creates the perfect conditions for the fruit to develop exceptional depth, flavor and complexity. Two Pisces Vineyard’s grapes grow on rolling hills where the vineyard was designed and planted for uniform and perfect ripeness.

The two Pisces themselves, Michael and Teela, have personally overseen every aspect of the development and management of their vineyard since the first vines were planted. The resulting luscious, fruit forward, acid balanced wine is truly representative of the excellent wines that are coming from the Sonoma Coast and has proven that their location is ideal for producing high quality Pinot Noir.

Pinot Noir is an exceptionally “food friendly” and versatile wine. It may be paired with grilled wild salmon, fillet mignon, or braised lamb shanks with buttery, garlic polenta. It also compliments the earthy flavors of local products such as goat cheese with toasted pecans, wild mushroom risotto with truffle oil or fresh heirloom tomatoes and Tuscan olive oil.
