The Clouds Rest story started with Vintner, John Saemann and later General Manager, Scott Schuette. Our unified vision to produce a world-class Pinot Noir began in 1999 when we began prepping a small plot of land on Sonoma Mountain composed of volcanic rocks and soil. This labor of love resulted in just under two acres of closely planted Pinot Noir vines. The first release came in 2002, and we have been producing consistent vintages of Pinot Noir ever since.
