Kudos to Masut: From the American Wine Society

Ben and Jake Fetzder
Congratulations to Masut - Wine Journal, the magazine of the American Wine Society, recommends Masut's 2011 Pinot Noir as one of 21 Wines to Watch.

It's all the more exciting because it's grown in a unique spot, straddling the hills on the western side of the Ukiah-Hopland corridor...and not inside nearby Pinot Noir powerhouse Anderson Valley.

The two brother winemaking team is third generation vintners, who are the first to focus solely on this finicky varietal - they figured they had the right place to grow it.

The winery is in a gorgeous setting - and you can visit about one day a year when the winery opens up for its release party when its open to the public (fee required). Sign up for their emails to stay on top of the timing!

Here are some photos I took at the 2010 release party last summer.

The winery is also open for private tours by appointment.

Masut was also selected by the Press Democrat as one of 7 top wineries to watch in 2013. Read more here.
