Winemaking

Our winemaking operations are led by Nathan Carlson, a veteran Edna Valley winemaker with longtime personal connections to the estate.

Nathan’s winemaking experience in the Edna Valley spans more than 12 years. He has also made Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County, Carneros, the Sonoma Coast and Oregon’s Dundee Hills. His work with wine industry technical leaders has forged close ties with winemakers around the world. At Center of Effort, Nathan oversees our winemaking operations and manages the estate.

Nathan has now come full circle, back to our estate. His expertise is instrumental in achieving the rigorous standards of quality and artistry that we demand in our wines.
