This Petite Verdot is sourced from Sage Ridge Vineyard, Geodesy’s crown jewel estate, overlooking Lake Hennessey in the Napa Valley. This is an opulent wine that offers plush, fine-grained tannin alongside fruit density and power. Geodesy was founded in gratitude to our agricultural community with the sole purpose of empowering the next generation of young women. 100% of profits support the WG Edge program that advances bright young women through connectivity with a multi-generational village of teachers, mentors and internship sponsors who guide, support and empower them. Drink well. Do good. It’s that simple.


Megan Baccitich

Winemaker, Geodesy

Winemaker, Megan Baccitich

A Healdsburg native, Megan Baccitich embraces the mentality of winegrowing-as-farming to create stunning expressions of terroir. As the winemaker for Geodesy, this is the perfect fit since she works closely with the vineyard team to ensure that each grape (well, maybe each cluster and row) is absolutely perfect for the final wine blend.

Megan’s pedigree includes multiple 100-point scores. A 2001 graduate of California State University at Fresno, Megan began her career at a custom crush facility giving her invaluable insight into production methodology across different wineries, appellations, and varietals. Her next assignment was with Paul Hobbs where she served as Director of Winemaking for a decade.

As one of Paul’s protégées, she honed her winemaking approach and crafted many highly sought-after wines that were favorites with critics and customers alike. As a mentor, Paul provided Megan with a culture of incremental improvement where discipline, rigor and keen attention to details were of the upmost importance. The corollary to this is Megan’s strong desire to be creative and her acute awareness that wine quality is the driver to every decision. Since 2016, she has been a consulting winemaker to several prestigious ventures and we’re pleased that Megan’s part of our journey.

As a youngster, Megan often visited her grandparents’ ranch in Dry Creek Valley, roaming the old, terraced Albariño vineyard, maintaining the orchard and gardening. Ever curious about science and nature, she cultivates a respect for the land and sustainable farming. Megan lives in Sonoma County with her life-partner, Ben, and their doggie-kid Rio.
