Ghost Pines are unique, and so are Ghost Pines wines. A Ghost Pine tree grows throughout Napa and Sonoma Counties in a free form shape,unlike the “Christmas tree” pyramid of all its pine tree cousins. The winemaking philosophy for Ghost Pines is to treat Premium grapes as resources not limited by the restrictions of a single vineyard or single appellation. These wines contain grapes from the best vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa counties.
When California trailblazer Joseph Chiles built his house along the Arroyo de Napa
in the middle of the 19th Century, Ghost Pines shouldered in on the hillside. He
planted wheat in the meadows where the soils had washed down from the steep hills
to the East and West. The house is still there. The Arroyo is now called Chiles Creek,
and the meadows have become Ghost Pines Vineyard.
Located in the heart of Chiles Valley, the Ghost Pines Vineyard consists of 150 acres
of land at an elevation of 700 feet. Vines were first planted on the Ghost Pines vineyard in the 1800’s. The vineyard was bought by the Martini family in 1968. We use
the name and the spirit of this historic vineyard to capture the heritage, tradition,
and artisan feel of our blended appellation wines.
