About the Wine
Proper Motion is an expression of a star’s movement across the sky, measured in relation to other celestial bodies over years or even centuries. Astronomers rely on such exacting and patient measurements to derive a deeper understanding of the universe and our place in it.
In winemaking, like astronomy, it’s not enough to simply measure one variable at a fixed point in time. You must understand each observed change in relation to a universe that is in constant transition. Proper Motion is a barrel-select clonal blend of Pinot Noir, sourced from Tidalstar Vineyard. It is a distinct and vibrant expression of this land and the dynamic interplay between the forces that shape it.
