iOTA ~ Pelos Sandberg Vineyard
iOTA Cellars slightly expanded its bottle offerings with the 2011 vintage. A generous bounty allowed our team its first opportunity to think outside the box and create a value offering as well as a small production rosé without altering Our Mission.
From one label to four:
iOTA “A small amount” made every vintage from our estate fruit; this is our original flagship bottling. It is a blend of our best barrels, blocks and clones that represents Pelos Sandberg Vineyard as a whole.
Not One iOTA “A fraction” separated during barrel aging that stands firmly on its own AND adds a shine to our flagship bottling. Fruit source is always 100% Pelos Sandberg Vineyard.
Phyllis Rosé of Pinot Noir A rosé of pinot noir made from our Pelos Sandberg Vineyard estate. This is a Provençal-styled, all-season rosé.
Chardonnay iOTA’s first white wine, made with fruit sourced from our good neighbors – Dukes Family Vineyards (’14-’15) – in preparation for Pelos Sandberg Vineyard chardonnay coming on line for the 2016 vintage.

On the topic of tasting notes, as written by Eric Asimov in How to Love Wine, “Far more interesting to me is writing that treats wine generally, alluding to characteristics without the obsessive detailing, and, more important, that places wine in context, whether of a meal, a social situation or a culture.”
In light of this, we have added Impressions to our Wine-Offerings web page, that reflect wisdom gained from observing.
Since 2000, we have purchased land, planted it (2002-2014), and made wine (2002-present). While we have followed many common practices, we have also applied site-specific knowledge to our process. This knowledge, along with vintage variations and the wine’s natural evolution in bottle, influences the final product in your glass.
iOTA Cellars’ offerings, accompanied by our Impressions of what these bottles may hold in store for you, can be found in our Vintage links below, along with Reviews from outside sources. Read, taste, enjoy and share your own reflections on our Blog, if you feel so inspired.
