About The Vineyard

Bucher Vineyard is well-known among Pinot Noir and Chardonnay aficionados and used by some of the most highly regarded producers in Northern California.


Farmer John Bucher applies the same care and approach to a small notch of Sauvignon Blanc which has been purchased by Cast wines since 2017 for their flagship Sauvignon Blanc. This vineyard sits in a cool micro-climate allowing for more developed and flavorful fruit.


Winemaker Notes

The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the juice was put into a stainless steel tank to ferment cold at 56º for about 3 weeks. After fermentation, the wine was racked off primary lees and settled until bottling 4 months later.

Ashley Herzberg

About the Winemaker:

Ashley graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a degree in Chemical Engineering and the intention to go to medical school. After discovering that her passion was not in medicine, she decided to come to Sonoma County and work a harvest in a winery lab. One harvest quickly turned into an all-encompassing passion and love of winemaking with all the science, art, chemistry, engineering and fun behind it!

She started as a Lab Technician at Owl Ridge and then moved to Lab Manager, benefiting from valuable mentoring by some of the top Pinot Noir vintners in California such as Merry Edwards, Greg Lafollette, Anthony Austin and Scot Covington. Because it was a custom-crush facility with over 40 clients at the time, Owl Ridge provided her with the opportunity to gain the perspective and knowledge that would prove invaluable in her career.

In 2007 she became Enologist and then Assistant Winemaker at Mauritson Winery.  She branched out on her own as a consulting winemaker in 2011, making wine for small family owned wineries in Sonoma County.
