One of the world’s most sought-after regions for cool-climate Chardonnay, this Sonoma County appellation is home to extraordinary terroir. Our Russian River Valley vineyards provide us with pristine coastal fruit that helps us produce elegant wines.
A stone's throw from the idyllic town of Boonville, at the entrance to Anderson Valley, Donnelly Creek Vineyard rests in a relatively warm part of the appellation, translating to ripe, generous fruit flavors. This beautiful 80-acre site rests along the confluence of the Donnelly and Anderson Creeks. Our Pinot Noir is blended from the vineyard’s creek-side blocks, whose well-established vines are more than 20 years old.
In the heart of Anderson Valley, Ridge Vineyard at Valley Foothills gives us 30-year-old Jackson clone Pinot Noir. This family-owned site is planted to cane-pruned and meticulously farmed vineyards that yield exceptional flavor. Fruit from this vineyard contributes beautiful aromatics to our Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.
Straddling a naturally sculpted ridgetop above the fog line, just ten miles from the Pacific Ocean, Wiley Vineyard is situated in the famed “Deep End”—the relatively cool, westernmost portion of Anderson Valley. Resting at an elevation of 525 feet, this historic vineyard has a gentle slope, a Southeastern aspect and shallow Franciscan soil. Our Pinot Noir is blended from 20 acres of vines planted to clones 37, 115, 538, 667, 777 and Pommard, planted in 1982. This complexity in the vineyard contributes to the finished wine's intriguing spice notes and savory character. Encircled by ridges sprinkled with conifers, this former homestead exemplifies the sublime beauty of Anderson Valley.
