our story

Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana González Rave and Jeff Pisoni.

Both had early desires of making wine, and spent most of their lives doing so. The year 2012, however, marked the first vintage that they produced together. Previously, during the grape harvest, Bibiana and Jeff were like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Early grape picks and late nights at the winery left them rarely crossing paths.

Now, Bibiana and Jeff do cross paths—to discuss ideas and taste samples. You can sometimes catch them in front of a grapevine, the press, a fermenting tank, or a barrel...most likely with a glass in hand.

Les leçons des maîtres
2023
Lessons of the masters

  • Style: A blend inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
  • Variety: 75% Sauvignon Blanc / 25% Semillon
  • AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County

A true homage to this legendary Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, the 2023 Shared Notes Les leçons des maîtres is a stunning example of the old adage that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Incredibly bright notes of key lime, white peach and grapefruit are enhanced by rich aromas of Casa Blanca lilies and guirlande d’Amour. As this wine coats the palate, flavors of nectarine and citrus awaken to add volume and supple texture. The Sauvignon Blanc brings acidity which cuts a razor sharp edge through the soft, textured roundness brought on by the addition of Sémillon and the influence of 100% new French oak barrel aging. This stunning blend begs to be enjoyed now, but will continue to age gracefully for as long as the temptation of removing the cork can be resisted.

Les pierres qui décident
2023
The rocks that decide

  • Style: A Sauvignon Blanc inspired by the pure and focused wines of the Loire Valley, where the rocks "decide" the style.
  • Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
  • AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County

The 2023 Les pierres qui décident is another vintage that offers a stunning expression of this variety, This vintage is quite simply, electrifying. Focused aromas of lime zest and minerality beam from the glass. True to its name, where the rocks “decide” the style, this wine offers subtle notes of chalky stone and sea air that gracefully evolve into crisp and remarkably pure flavors of pear, nectarine, lemon peel and peach blossom. Aging exclusively in 100% new French oak puncheons, this Sauvignon Blanc is unapologetically vibrant, with remarkable focus and deliberate intensity. Enjoy this wine in its vivid youth, or cellar for a decade to realize the full potential of this enigmatic variety.

our coffee

This is a new offering from Bibiana & Jeff Pisoni. Shared Notes has always been a joint-venture in winemaking: crafting small lots of high-end wine (and “sharing notes”). The desire is to share the same passion for coffee as they have for wine.

Both Bibiana and Jeff have spent their entire lives focusing on the sensory details of smell and taste while making wine—now they also look to do the same with single-farm sourcing & roasting of coffee.

Shared Notes Coffee is crafted by Bibiana and Jeff Pisoni, winemakers who spend their lives studying soil, climate and fermentation to express the beauty of a site or region. Coffee, like wine, derives its story and flavor from the land where it is born.

Shared Notes is dedicated to sourcing single-origin coffee beans exclusively from Colombia, Bibiana’s native country.
