"Etude was founded on the philosophy that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in wine that is grown, not made. This remains our approach today as we continue to build the Etude legacy."

Jon Priest, Etude Winemaker

It’s all in the details

The Grace Benoist Ranch, home to the Etude Estate Vineyards, lies in the Coast Ranges of California – young mountains thrust up by forces of colliding crustal plates.

These forces are also the origin of the San Andreas Fault System and its parallel components, including the Rogers Creek Fault that runs a few hundred feet west of the Ranch. The property itself is cut by at least one fault – the Bennett Valley Fault – which our “Temblor” Vineyard pays tribute to.

Accolades & Reviews


"This is rich and plush (very Oakville), yet there are some mushroom, forest-floor and bark undertones. It’s full and very layered with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of presence. So long and intense. Wonderfully put together. Try after 2024."


"This is a dense and firm pinot with dried strawberry, red cherry and tile. Some spice undertones. It’s full and layered with fine-tannin intensity and a long, long finish. So much clove and nutmeg with the fruit at the end, but then it shows energy. Love to drink this now, but even better in 2024."


“Another fascinating pinot from Etude this vintage with strawberry, cherry and rose-petal aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, tight tannins and a vivid finish. Linear and long at the end. Needs two or three years to soften, but I already love the energy and pointed precision. Drink or hold.”
