Our Story

Geometry wines are sourced from the finest grapes available in the ideal regions for producing top flight Rhône wines.

How We Started
The seeds for our project were planted years ago, when a few Marin county friends got together and started an informal wine tasting group focused on discovering and enjoying great wine. The Geometry concept sprang out of the team’s collective desire to produce a wine of exceptional quality, embodying many of the characteristics we admired in northern Rhône-style wines. We brought on award-winning Sonoma winemaker Chris Taddei to help bring it to fruition, and with our 2012 vintage, the vision became a reality. Now, after long and careful cultivation, we are grateful for a result we feel is truly spectacular. We hope you will too.

The Goal
Our goal with Geometry is to create a wine that is a true reflection of the team’s values and the terroir of Bennett Valley in Sonoma. Geometry has grown out of a shared vision of the kind of wine we love. With our inaugural 2012 vintage, we believe we hit our target and defined the standard for future vintages as well. The wine was well-crafted, an authentic reflection of its origins, elegant and balanced, while remaining accessible and unpretentious.

The Focus
We focus on Syrah and Syrah blends; Rhône varietals that will have intensity, depth and balance – a key value of the team and the wines we want to make! The wines are made in small quantities, with the direct involvement and labor of the whole team at every point in the wine-making process. The first vineyard that we chose to work with is in the Bennett Valley AVA of Sonoma, known for its relatively cool climate.

The Team
Geometry wines is the creation of a team of Marin–based wine enthusiasts and our outstanding Sonoma based wine-maker Chris Taddei. The team has close ties to the community and values authenticity and quality. Most of the team has bonded through wine over a dozen years together as part of an informal wine club focused on discovering and enjoying great wine. Geometry sprang out the team’s collective desire to learn more and produce a wine of exceptional quality.

Why Geometry?
We marvel at the beauty of the geometry we find in nature – the authentic, natural beauty you might find in a nautilus shell, a fern’s fiddlehead in spring, the symmetry of many leaves and flowers, or the conical shape of a perfect bunch of grapes! It’s this natural expression of geometry that we’d like to capture in our wines which balance the essence of the grapes we harvest with the science we use to make the wines.
