Pelerin, French for pilgrim, seeks to emulate the image of a "humble man on a heroic journey" as winemaker Chris Weidemann focuses on producing the best wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands. He and his wife Cathy have built their small artisan winery around a focus on Pinot Noir along with white and red Rhone varieties sourced predominantly from organic vineyards. Drawing on his past collaborative experiences with winemakers John Kongsgaard and Dean DeKorth, Weidermann strives to balance intense, dramatic wines with textural balance and complexity. Total production is approximately 1500 cases.
