Landmark’s a Landslide
In the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, sits a winery that’s been making its mark since 1974. Landmark Vineyards takes handcrafting wine to heart, using old world traditions to make new world wines.
In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani sits down with the winemaker at Landmark Vineyards and finds out why everything that was old is new again and she gets a taste of their award-winning wines worthy of The White House.

Wine Spectator Scores:
2010 Grand Detour Pinot Noir
91 points. Notably earthy in a pleasant way, this Pinot is firm, loamy and slow to build, with its dark berry core of flavors. Once there, the flavors are intense and persistent, compelling yet begging for a cellar slumber. Best from 2013 through 2021. 2,200 cases made.
2009 Heintz Chardonnay
92 points. Crisp and a bit pithy, with green apple subtle honeydew melon, graham cracker and mineral notes. This is a tight, well-built and engagingly complex wine that surprises with every sip. Drink now through 2018. 200 cases made.
2009 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay
91 points. A spicy, flinty, snapp edge to the green apple and pear flavors gives this a nice structure. The finish features cleansing acidity and a Golden Delicious apple aftertaste. Drink now through 2017. 450 cases made.
