Client commissioned map of the 128-acre Circle Bar Ranch. Comprised of 13 distinctive blocks, the vineyards include seven different soil types, and is planted to 11 Pinot Noir clonal selections. The incredible range of flavors grown here gives our winemaking team numerous blending options in any given vintage. The well-draining soils of Circle Bar cultivate intensely flavorful red wine. The northern section of the ranch, in particular, has a distinctive volcanic ridgeline that provides optimal conditions for Pinot Noir.
Client commissioned pen and ink illustration for the SF Bay Trail— a planned 500-mile walking and cycling path around the entire San Francisco Bay. The loop runs through all nine Bay Area counties, 47 cities, and across seven toll bridges. With 345 miles in place, the Bay Trail connects communities to parks, open spaces, schools, transit and to each other, and also provides a great alternative commute corridor.
