Our focus in learning the story (Terroir) of our Estate vineyard and telling that story through our wines. The message is the vineyard, the messenger is the wine.

Sinor-LaVallee was founded in 1997 by Mike Sinor and Cheri LaVallee-Sinor. Starting with the 2013 our wines are all from our Estate vineyard in Avila Beach with an Ocean View. There we have of Pinot Noir (8 clones) , Syrah, Chardonnay (3 clones), Pinot Gris and Albarino (planted on 3ft terraces).

In February 2015 we will have a tasting room in Avila Beach one block from the Ocean.

Our journey began almost 23 years ago, when we met at college in San Luis Obispo and started working at local wineries. The wine bug bit us hard, and the Pinot Noir bug bit us even harder. We were young and a little crazy. The Central Coast still had to prove itself, and so did we. Game on.

We kept at it, grinding out one harvest after another, consuming the craft of winemaking, and studying the art of Pinot Noir. We got married in Burgundy. We had two beautiful children. Experience led to opportunity, and opportunity led to more experience, and both led to fanaticism. And from fanaticism our little winery was born.

Sharing what we do is why we do it. We hope you enjoy our wines.
