back to the origin of pinot noir


Originating in France, the grape variety Pinot Noir got its name because the first Pinot Noir grape clusters resembled the shape of the pine cones from the Black Pine tree indigenous to southern France. “Black Pine” seemed to Roger Roessler to be a fitting name for the wine he wanted to immediately evoke the image and flavor of  “Pinot Noir” to wine lovers everywhere.

Our mission at Black Pine is to present passionate Pinot lovers with a wine that is true to its origins and tastes delicious. Making this wine available to you at an affordable price that allows you to enjoy it for everyday occasions is the goal at Black Pine. We hope that in your enjoyment of the wine, you’ll become as passionate about Pinot as we are in bringing it to you.

Black Pine Pinot Noir is a masterful blend of great vineyards


Black Pine Pinot Noir is a masterful blend of great vineyards from up and down the California Coast.  Rich in concentration, Black Pine Pinot Noir fills the glass with concentrated dark cherry and earthy aromas that continue to the palate with lush and concentrated dark cherry and berry flavors with herbal and spice notes on great structure and ending with a silky, long finish.  Our Black Pine hits Pinot Noir’s Sweet Spot with complexity, nuance and the lush mouthfeel that makes Pinot Noir so special. It’s the perfect wine for everything from burgers and a casual evening at home to a warm, inviting cassoulet and a romantic dinner for two.

Black Pine Means Pinot Noir!
