Originally represented with the image of Marlene Dietrich, Squire is a homage to the manifold nature of Pinot Noir: it is at once feminine, masculine, esoteric, popular and noble. The name Squire is a nod to the nobility of Pinot, and an acknowledgement of the rural nature of the Central Coast. We represent Squire with the depiction of an Orlando-esque character, as a setting for the surprise that Pinot delivers.
