Banshee defies conventions to create exceptional wine for the true drinkers
Our wines dare to be different and distinctive
With a strong focus on Pinot Noir from the cool, rugged coastal areas of the Western Sonoma Coast and a passion for Single Vineyard designates, we strive to produce some of the best damn Pinot Noir in Sonoma County. To keep things interesting, we also produce an awesome line-up of crisp Sauvignon Blanc, vibrant coastal Chardonnays, mouth-watering Rosé, bold & brawny Cabernets and exciting reds like Carignan and Cabernet Franc from Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino Counties, and beyond.

If you have enjoyed our Marine Layer Pinot Noir, think of El Pino as its wilder, darker sidekick. We love working on these blends simultaneously, selecting the more delicate barrels for Marine Layer and the more robust for "El Pino".
Marine Layer is a special barrel selection from our best vineyards — in this case Heintz and Bohemian — blending them together to create an homage to the chilly Sonoma Coast in our backyard.
The 2018 Mendocino Carignan is a deep, inky magenta with woody manzanita and cigar box aromas. Rich flavors of mulberry and crispy pie crust with hints of bergamot and violet lead to a texture of fine, supple leather.
An exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of macerated tart cherries, pomegranate and notes of earth of pine. The flavors combine both sweet and tart with a fruit driven front palate and very subtle oak influence.

Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from a combination of vineyards in the Russian River and Sonoma Valleys. The warm days and cool evenings of these regions are perfect for our style of Sauvignon Blanc: fruit-driven with a backbone of lipsmacking acidity.
The 2019 Mendocino County Banshee Rosé is a lovely shade of pale salmon with aromas of rose water, salinity and fresh picked strawberries. Bright flavors of juicy cantaloupe and honeydew melon are highlighted by a touch of Meyer lemon.
Abounds with intense flavors of boysenberry, dark plum, and blackberry with a smooth silky finish featuring hints of cocoa and touch of caramel. Well balanced with fine tannins, this wine is deep and multi-dimensional. Will play well for 15 -20 years.
Elegant yet structured, with a broad, soft palate and medium body. Reminiscent of the terroir-driven Syrahs of the Northern Rhône, this wine displays black cherry fruit, hints of violet and layers of exotic spice.
This is a very delicate Pinot Noir, with a warmly scented nose of potpourri and freshly crushed red berries. In the mouth you will find electric flavors of cranberry, strawberry, anise seed and pomegranate. The finish is long, precise and pleasantly bitter, much like a negroni.
This Pinot Noir takes you on a lovely stroll through an enchanted redwood forest. A very rustic wine with ever-changing aromatics of eucalyptus, rich earth, and a fresh herb garden. Bright flavors of blackberry and black cherry with undertones of dark earth and bramble lead to a soft, lingering finish and a touch of spearmint.
