In the foothills of the western Edna Valley lies our landmark estate vineyard, its roots spanning four decades.

Over the years, each member of our winery family has been personally touched by this place in one way or another. We now come full circle, returning to create something special.

Our respect for the vineyard and its unique environment is reflected in our emphasis on sustainable viticulture, natural fermentations and other non-invasive, progressive winemaking practices. In order to craft the finest wines possible, we ensure that the highest standards are set at every step in the winemaking process.

The resulting wines are, we believe, without parallel. They represent the intersection of caretaking, skill and commitment — truly a Center of Effort. We are honored to share them with you.

The Center of Effort winery is very special. The Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay are unbelievably great. Have toured many Russian River Pinot wineries and Center of Effort is better than almost everywhere I have visited and tasted. Their new state of the art tasting room is just being completed. Beautiful new outdoor area also. Go for the wine stay for the hospitality.
