Today we celebrate National Farmer’s Day – a day to recognize and thank all farmers; we’d like to thank our wine grape farmers in particular!

The Giguiere family has a strong, storied tradition of farming out here in the Dunnigan Hills, which is why we hold agriculture in the wine business in high regard. Over the years, we’ve formed strong relationships with the best farmers in the Russian River Valley and beyond.

The term MOSSBACK is an old-time expression for farmers, folks who are both connected to their roots and to the land. Our Mossback label conjures images of the mossy stones, trees trunks and end posts so prevalent in California’s cool coastal regions, home to some of the most renowned grape growers in the world. These wines are a nod to those men and women, who understand more than anyone the delicate relationship between vine, climate and soil. Cheers to the Ag Community and All Our Beloved Farmers!
