Vivier is an exciting project from husband and wife team Stephane and Dana Sexton Vivier. Stephane likes to call himself "the lazy winemaker." Growing up in Burgundy, he learned from some of the greats who taught him that if you have exceptional fruit, you need to do very little in the cellar. After studying winemaking in Burgundy, he immigrated to the US where he became the winemaker of HdV (Hyde de Villaine) where he worked under the tutelage of Aubert de Villaine of Domaine Romanee-Conti. 

Gap's Crown is widely understood to be one of the finest Pinot Noir vineyards in all of California. Tucked on the western hillside of Sonoma Mountain, it is fanned by the cool ocean breezes that push through the Petaluma Gap. This is a favorite of Stéphane because of the long growing season, rocky soil and inhospitable weather.

Floral, subtle and minerally perfumed aromas: light spice, violet, and vibrant red fruits loft on the perfect frame giving way to a dense, elegant the palate. Racy yet elegant, it shows texture and refinement with fresh raspberry, floral elements with violet, rose petals and spice underneath.
