Navigate:  StoreFront / The Tanaka Project
September 10, 2020, World Suicide Prevention Day, was the day we chose to release our first single-vineyard Pinot Noir, The Tanaka Project.

Our dear friend Ron Tanaka, an artist, poet and scholar, came into our lives in 1983. Often finding inspiration for his works in our vineyards and wines, Ron loved our Pinots best. He created two sets of poetry directly tied to Mount Eden, The Mount Eden Poems and Mountain Wines; A Girl Grows Up on Mount Eden, amongst the many pieces he wrote.

Sadly, Ron took his own life in 2007, leaving us heartbroken.

We decided to honor our friend by renaming one of our Pinot Noir vineyards, Tanaka and producing this special wine as a tribute to him. This vineyard site was one of Ron's favorite spots on the property and has a sense of terroir distinct from our other estate Pinot Noir vineyards: Only three barrels (approximately 75 cases) of this single-vineyard Pinot Noir are produced.

The 2017 vintage was our first Tanaka Project release; twenty-five percent of the purchase price has been donated to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness Santa Clara County chapter's life-saving mental health services. We are so proud to announce that over $10,000 has been donated to date.

With our newest Tanaka Project Release, the 2019 vintage, twenty-five percent of the purchase price will again be donated to a worthy ally supporting mental health.
