It was on one of our frequent trips across the Mendocino and Sonoma County line in pursuit of cool-climate vineyard sites that the name County Line was born. The first vintage was solely dedicated to producing a dry Rosé from a whole-cluster pressed Champagne clone of Pinot Noir, and a handful of varietals naturally followed. A companion label to Radio-Coteau since 2003, we remain committed to organic and holistic farming practices that promote biodiversity in the vineyards and on our farm. This dedication is seen in the County Line label artwork, which features various animals found on our farm that all have a part in maintaining our healthy agroecosystem. Learn more about the artists Molly Kars, Christopher Hataway, and Bonfed.
Led by winegrower and proprietor Eric Sussman, we are a modest team of farmers, cellar hands, customer liaisons, and creatives. Like the many elements essential to a healthy and diverse farm, we work in tandem to bring County Line from the vineyard to your glass.
