Collaborateurs Donald Patz and François Villard visited Alder Springs Vineyard in early August 2017 to meet with owner, Stu Bewley and work out a beginning of a new wine project that became TERMINIM.
Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino County, California is our vineyard source. The Marsanne was from “Spirit Rock” the Roussanne was from “Clay Field” and the Syrah was from “Cahto Ridge” and “Spirit Rock” blocks.

A collaboration between François Villard and Donald Patz– it’s not one vision alone but a dialogue between the Rhône Valley and Napa Valley. We agreed to start very small with three grape varieties. Marsanne, Roussanne, Syrah.
There is no other place quite like Alder Springs Vineyard.
An extreme location and steep terrain with each varietal in its ideal microclimate.
The word is derived from “Terminus” the Roman God of borders and boundaries. The source of the grapes for TERMINIM is the Alder Springs Vineyard in Northern Mendocino County.Read more
What People Are Saying…
I tasted this earlier in the year at Hospice du Rhone and it was one of my favorite whites of the day. In the mouth, the headiness undeniably Rhone white varieties comes on early and strong. This is not Chard or Viognier. Respectfully fat as a South France grape should be, but tempered with the Northern Rhone crispness Mendocino easily delivers. - Tasted the Cépages d’Or 2017 Terminim Marsanne 66% and Rousanne 34% from the Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino County.
This wine gets better every time I try it! - Tasted the Cépages d’Or 2017 Terminim Marsanne 66% and Rousanne 34% from the Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino County.
