Although the original settler may have been Joaquin Murrieta, the bandit who favored the water at the property’s artesian well, it was a French native whom recognized the land’s potential for amazing wine quality. Louis Mel bought the 92-acre property in 1883 and built a winery into the hillside adjacent to the well. The old stone winery building is a gorgeous example of early California architecture. Local timber and rustic concrete made from gravel gathered from the nearby Arroyo Mocho Creek were used in the construction.
The winery is beautiful and is a wonderful place to go on a nice day to enjoy the scenery, its history, and to bring family. Though not a large, famous winery compared to its 'Rutherford' cousin, it produces some splendid wines which make the trip well worth it by themselves. However, the experience would only be excellent if it were rounded out by commensurately skilled and friendly staff. A standout here was Bonnie, who, despite seemingly overwhelmingly large numbers of clients to serve, managed to serve them all--as far as I could tell-- with warmth and friendliness, a big smile, and an incredible amount of enological knowledge--both about this winery, but about wines in general. She seemed excited to share this information, and her joy in wines, and not just be a server.
Coates Vineyards, certified organic biodynamic winery, is in the Six Rivers National Forest near the small town of Orleans in Northern California. It was founded by Norman Coates, an organic farmer, winemaker, and vineyard manager in 1991 with the planting of the first of five vineyards.The first vineyard was Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Sangiovese from cuttings that were from organic vineyards in Sonoma County, California. The cuttings were rooted in nursery beds and then planted out in vineyard rows the following spring. The vineyards on the Klamath have the luxury of being established on their own roots instead of being grafted onto disease resistant rootstocks for the simple reason that Orleans is far away from the large grape growing areas where diseases are prevalent.
Nestled among acres of lush wine grapes, Harmony Wynelands is an expansive property, surrounded by picturesque gardens and grounds.
Wine should reflect its’ origin. Wine should display the uniqueness of its’ soil and climate. Wine should tell a story, or at least create one, to be told over and over again to smiling faces and half empty glasses. Wine is joy, and Stroth-Hall Cellars takes pleasure to bring joy to your world and your glass.
