Senses Wines is the dream of three childhood friends. Christopher, Max and Myles partnered with critically acclaimed winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, to produce world-class wines from renowned vineyards owned by their families. Since founding in 2011, Senses Wines production has grown to include many coveted vineyard sites throughout northern California.
Senses Wines estate vineyards are located in the West Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, specifically just outside the town of Occidental where the three founders grew up.
Our wines embody the natural and distinct characteristics of the vineyards from where the grapes are grown. Our team believes the vineyards are Senses Wines’ greatest assets, and we meticulously farm each vine so the winemaking process can be as hands-off as possible. This approach ensures the complexity and finesse we expect for each wine, vintage after vintage. Grapes are hand sampled and harvested at ideal ripeness, cold-soaked for a few days, fermented with yeasts indigenous to the vineyard, and ultimately pressed and barreled into a selection of our favorite French cooperages.
