Our story in a few more words
ALTA ORSA embodies rugged authenticity, calling those of us who yearn for craftsmanship and adventure by exploring paths less traveled. Those same paths have led us to discover partner vineyards throughout the North Coast that carry their own heritage and stories that we want to tell.
ORSA is a tale of appellations. We aim to highlight the character of each region by producing expressive wines through minimal intervention in the winery. These wines are the introduction to the breadth of our winemaking and our story.
As a small, experienced, and passionate team, we pull up our boots, tuck gloves in our back pockets, and band together to craft exceptional small-lot wines from heritage vineyards that embrace the sense of place. We honor the careful task of nurturing these vineyards through raw yet detailed handwork first and foremost.
Our goal is not to expand broadly, rather become deeply connected to these places, our wines, and patrons. We strive to honor the land through wines – capturing their uniqueness while building a sustainable business. Due to small production levels, the wines are available straight from us to consumers, select restaurants, and retails shops, so that those who enjoy our wines can become part of our adventure. We aim to be transparent, focused, and committed to our community.
