David Hirsch began planting his vineyard near Fort Ross in 1980, long before the Sonoma Coast was realized as having potentially the best terroir in the county for Burgundian varieties. For many years, the aim was to sell the fruit to other winemakers, including Williams-Selyem, Siduri, and Littorai. Now, almost all of the fruit is bottled under the Hirsch Vineyards label. Many great winemakers have made the Hirsch wines, including Vanessa Wong, Ross Cobb, and Anthony Filiberti. Hirsch’s daughter Jasmine took over winemaking duties in 2017.
The Hirsch Vineyards Bohan-Dillon Estate Pinot Noir is an affordable world-class wine that shows the full spectrum of the Hirsch Vineyard. Made 100% from Hirsch fruit, it represents exceptional value from the True Sonoma Coast. This wine is produced using the exact same winemaking methods and with the same attention to detail as with the other Hirsch pinots, thereby ensuring a wine of great quality, traditional varietal character, and sense of place.
