My parents, Bob and Dolores Walt, were dedicated winegrowers who loved the land and each other. Our family produced six different varietals that we sold to several great wineries. For my parents, growing grapes was a shared family vision-a view of well cared for vines out the kitchen window, starting early in the day doing what you really love, the satisfaction of a hard day’???s work, the feeling of peace walking through the vineyard before sunset. When I was away I missed our vineyard terribly and longed to be home working with my family. So, I was happy to be able to manage the vineyard operations from 1982 until 1992. My parents passed away many years ago, but they remain forever my inspiration for growing grapes and making wine. Not a day goes by that I don’???t think of their love of the earth or passion for the vines. I just love these wines. At WALT we have an amazing and dedicated winemaking team, a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, a passionate winery staff, and strong relationships with extraordinary vineyard partners. What a combination! I am thankful every day for the chance to make wine. And I am thankful that my parents, Bob and Dolores, guided our family to this wonderful way of life. I invite you to explore WALT Wines as they speak the voice of the vineyard and demonstrate the talent and passion of our team.

The vineyards in our La Brisa blend are farmed meticulously for low yields and balance in order to capitalize on their distinctive sites. Each vineyard is blessed with cool maritime conditions and limiting soil profiles. As with all of our Pinot Noirs, we double-sort every berry before gravity-feeding it to tank to undergo an extensive cold soak period. Primary and malolactic fermentations are conducted using only native yeast and resident malolactic bacteria from the vineyard. The wines are never racked and during the long malolactic fermentation, we top and stir each barrel weekly. Prior to bottling, we blend the wines without fining or filtering. All of these natural, gentle processes are exacting and arduous, but vital when crafting the most honest expression of the vineyard.
