About our winery:

The Banshee guys are passionate about creating benchmark wines from California’s iconic vineyards as well as crafting soulful blends that don't break the bank. When they’re not making wine you can find them preparing grand multi-course meals, sabering Champagne bottles, seeking out the nearest swimming hole, or dancing on tabletops. Classic guy activities.

Our main focus for Pinot Noir is on the cool, rugged, coastal areas of the far Western Sonoma Coast, including Coastlands, Emmaline, and Rice-Spivak vineyards. Each of these sites has a unique combination of their specific oceanic influence, soil type, elevation, age and exposure but the common thread is that they allow us to pursue Pinot that achieves power without weight. They allow the grapes to express a certain transparency. They highlight a wide range of flavors other than just fruit. Forest floor, pine, tea, mushroom, spice, minerals...


Without great vineyards, making great wines is simply impossible.

In our relentless pursuit of wines with balance, elegance, and purity, we have developed relationships with some of the most storied vineyards in Sonoma County and beyond to craft Banshee.

The remote Sonoma Coast doesn’t tell the entire Banshee story, as choice sites elsewhere play an equally important role for us. Vineyards such as Tina Marie in Russian River, Hurst in Sebastopol Hills, and Sullivan on Sonoma Mountain each possess a uniqueness and grapes of superb quality that fall in line with our mission.

Outside of Sonoma County, and specifically in the chilly Anderson Valley appellation, we work with vineyards such as Blakeman and Broken Leg.

Our belief is that the best wines from California are yet to be made...and we plan on producing some of them.
