David and DeAnn Taylor founded Cordant Winery in 2014 with the goal to produce Pinot Noir and Rhone-style wines that would become favorites in their own cellar, and hopefully those of friends, family, and customers.
Today we make about 3000 cases of wine per year, from Monterey County in the northern California Central Coast moving south through Santa Barbara County, a distance that covers almost 200 miles.
Certain wines we vineyard-designate which allows us to present those vineyard sites through their unique terroir, micro-climates, and soil conditions. It is always a joy to taste vineyards side-by-side to understand their unique contributions.
But we blend other wines throughout the range of our Central Coast vineyards to offer the best combined contributions and complexity we can nurture from these vineyards. In fact, in a given year we source fruit from 16 to 20 different vineyard sites for our wines. With so many different vineyards, it allows us to mix it up a bit each harvest.
It has been an educational and rewarding journey since we joined the vibrant Paso Robles wine community. We hope you will join us as we continue to chart our evolving course!
