Sam Spencer comes to Head High Wines with a long and distinguished career as a winegrower, wine-industry consultant, and vineyard developer for the past two decades on California’s North Coast. After studying viticulture at the University of California at Davis, Sam got his start as wine director of a bustling wine bar in San Francisco. He went on to build multiple wine brands from the soil up. “I have pursued a career in winegrowing by illuminating a vineyard’s best facets,” he says. Sam, a father of two, is a lifelong sailor and surfer and an avid cyclist and skier.
California’s Clear Lake AVA features well draining, volcanic soils. This, combined with high elevation (2,250 ft.) and a longer growing season, allows Grenache to thrive. Our 2013 Head High Red is blended with 11% Lake County Grenache.
Maritime fog and Pacific breezes keep the Sonoma Coast uniquely cool. This climate produces some of the best Pinot Noir around: concentrated, earthy, and 100% Head High.
Cooler climates preserve a grape’s acidity, an essential ingredient to great rosé. Our 2014 Head High Rosé is produced with 100% Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for a bright, refreshing finish.
