A Celebration of Place and People
Jake and Laura Hawkes started Carpenter with a desire to make delicious, unpretentious wines that speak to place rather than process. Carpenter is a collaborative effort, and we want to thank all of the talented and hardworking people who have made it possible: the farmers, the pickers and pruners, the rig drivers, the suitcase-clone-smugglers, the barrel-makers, the hose draggers and tank cleaners, the sales team, the bottle-, cork-, label- and foil-makers, the bottling and delivery team, the winemaker, and above all, Mother Nature. Sonoma County is an ideal place to grow grapes, and we have been fortunate to farm here for over 46 years. This wine is a celebration of place and people: salud!
