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.
Those that have driven Harrison Grade in the region know that it is one of the most remote and treacherous paths of road in the area. Harmony Lane (perhaps named because life is harmonious after you get there?) sits at 800 ft and just under the ridge line providing an exceptional blend of marine layer fog and warm sunshine. This wine is one of the deeper and darker wines of the lineup and most certainly one of the best wines they have produced.
