Semper means “always” in Latin. Boo Beckstoffer was born on a Marine Corps base and grew up with the Marine Corps motto, Semper Fideles (Always Faithful) all around her. During their courtship, Boo signed her love letters to Tuck simply Semper. In return, Tuck wanted to give Boo something she could have for “always.” As a farmer, a gorgeous Chardonnay and an enduring Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast seemed the appropriate gesture.
Sonoma Coast Appellation
Miles north of San Francisco is a distinct corner of the Sonoma Coast appellation known for cool ocean breeze, limited water access, and the presence of the great spotted owl. During the growing season the vineyard experiences bright sunshine during the day but is often subject to the cool blanket of the fog that hugs the coastline. Because of this, temperatures rarely drop too low or rise above 85 degrees, creating the ideal conditions for that perfect slow ripening.
Due to a combination of these unique characteristics, we believe these vineyards will be preserved over time, giving the wines produced in this area a rare and collectable quality that will only increase in value over time.
