Waits-Mast Family Cellars | StoryWinelight
Waits-Mast Family Cellars produces small lots of single-vineyard pinot noir from small, independent growers in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County and Mendocino Ridge.
And by small lot, we mean small – 50 or 100 case lots. That means each lot receives close attention and care as we work to strike a balance of flavor, aroma and texture and faithfully represent the characteristics of each vineyard site.
From these different regions, we source fruit from premium vineyards, some from familiar names and others that are a bit under the radar. It is that combination of strong grower relationships and constant discovery that gets us excited about winemaking and about sharing these wines with you.
We highlight women led businesses on our site because most winery owners and winemakers are men. To earn this tag the winery must be majority women owned or have a female winemaker.
Family owned and operated businesses are an important part of the US economy. To earn this tag, a winery has two or more family members involved, and the majority ownership lies within the family.
Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.
