The Cube Project
Three Winemakers, Three Vineyards, Nine Wines: An Experiment in Terroir with Anne Amie Vineyards, Bouchaine Vineyards, and Lincourt Vineyards
- This experiment is about community, terroir, and creative expression for the winemaker. It is a unique opportunity to see their home vineyard through someone else's eyes.
- Each winery will decide which block of theirs to pick. The block will have to be at least 6-tons in size. Each 6-ton lot will be divided into thirds, with each of the three winemakers fermenting 2 tons of fruit.
- Each winemaker will be responsible for the picking decisions at their own winery; therefore each of the three wines made from that particular lot will start on equal footing.
- Each winery will produce 120 cases of each vineyard.

Estate Block 43 is a gem of Bouchaine’s Pinot Noir plantings. It’s a perennial favorite that consistently produces elegant wines layered with Carneros character.
This wine comes from the West Lindsay’s Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. It is a cool, hilly, maritime-influenced property possessing well-draining, limestone-based soils that are ideal for Pinot Noir.
Anne Amie’s Estate Vineyard rests on Mineral Springs ridge in Yamhill-Carlton. Shadowed by the Pacific Coast Range, its Willakenzie soil combined with warm days & cool nights yields the depth of fruit & rich tannins that exemplify our “backyard.”
