Anthony Filiberti, Dave Low and Web Marquez crossed paths while working at Williams-Selyem in 2003 after a few years as cellar rats in California, Oregon, and Virginia. They started Anthill Farms in 2004, making eight-and-a-half barrels of wine their first year. While production has increased and vineyard sources have expanded the focus is still on small lots of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a smattering of Syrah. Outside of their mailing list, a small amount of wine is released every year to restaurants and wine shops.
Comprised from two of the coolest vineyard sites in the county, this is always one of the last wines to be harvested in the Anthill Farms lineup. The 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinot is a big, brooding and rich example of this application level pinot noir.
