Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse
Seaview, Sonoma Coast
The most feminine of our Pinot Noirs, this wine is made from grapes grown in the coolest, northernmost sections of our Fort Ross-Seaview vineyard, which is oriented towards the marine air moving through the Gualala River canyon.
Ma Danseuse was named for Lady Michael by Sir Peter. As a young man attending judo classes in London, Peter took note of the considerably more charming attendees of the dance school across the lane, and in particular, a certain gold medal winning ballroom dancer to whom he soon extended an invitation out. The future Lady Michael said that she would love to… as long as he himself was a medal-level ballroom dancer. The determined former judo student hit bronze in record time.
“I thought he was a rather pushy individual but I do so love to dance.” – Lady Michael
