Guided by winemaker Dana Epperson—a cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay specialist—Migration has taken flight. Defined by the idea of movement, Migration has gone beyond its original boundaries to explore Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from several of California’s finest cool-climate appellations. This includes working with such renowned vineyards as Dierberg and Bien Nacido in the Santa Maria Valley, Charles Heintz Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, and Drum Canyon Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. It has also found a stylistic home among the great vineyards of the Russian River Valley, where Migration has established its own Running Creek Vineyard, which features 70 acres of Pinot Noir and 20 acres of Chardonnay. From this exceptional site, and other acclaimed properties, including Dutton Ranch, Migration makes its flagship Sonoma Coast wines.
In May of 2021 Migration opened a tasting room in the picturesque Carneros region of
Napa Valley. Located at 1451 Stanly Lane, the Migration tasting room is ideally situated between Napa Valley and Sonoma County, less than an hour’s drive from San Francisco and Oakland. Offering an elegant, upscale farmhouse aesthetic that reflects the breezy natural beauty of Carneros wine country, the tasting room hosts guests for by-appointment seated tastings of Migration’s acclaimed cool climate wine.
