Our Philosophy

I have been captivated by Pinot Noir and Chardonny for over twenty years, ever since I first became serious about wine. I have been a student of the the Byzantine empire for even longer. The creation of Constantinople Pinot Noir and Chardonnay enables me to meld these two passions. Constantinople Wines selects grapes from the finest California vineyards to make hand crafted wines with a distinctive California style.

The name of our winery, Constantinople, is the capital of the Byzantine empire, an empire that lasted for 1000 years. Like great wines, the Byzantine empire drew its strength from its blending of diverse elements. The mosaic of the Emperor Justinian on our label represents this synthesis with its combination of both Western and Eastern artistic traditions.
