Horse and Plow

Horse and Plow

Chris Condos and Suzanne Hagins started Horse & Plow based in Sonoma in 2008 to produce authentic, hand-crafted wines that speak of a sense of place. Chris is a partner and continues to be the Winemaker at Vinum Cellars and also consults for Kathryn Kennedy in Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.

After working harvest at Comte Armand in Pommard, Suzanne has worked in the cellars of DeLoach, David Bruce and Goldeneye before starting her own small production Pinot Noir brand called Lutea. Together they share a passion for the terroir of California and believe it finds its most authentic expression when growers are committed to working organically and when the wines are made naturally in the cellar with no synthetic nutrients or additives, no GMO’s, and low sulfites. Horse & Plow’s organic vineyards dot the North Coast of California; including Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino Counties.
