Our Estate vineyards are picturesquely located on a hilltop on the eastern side of Dry Creek Valley, in northern Sonoma County. With commanding views of Geyser Peak and Mount St. Helena to the east, and the entire Dry Creek Valley to the west, the combination of steep terrain, stone-strewn soils, cool ocean influence and warm summer days provides perfect growing conditions for our vines.
Much like the Côtes du Rhône region of France, these diverse soils produce luscious fruit from grape varieties including Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne and Dry Creek Valley’s most popular grape variety, Zinfandel, as well as another favorite, Petite Sirah.
This beautiful 40 acre ranch is sustainably farmed and tended to by hand in 10 distinct blocks based on the specific soil, exposure, slope, vine age and type. Each block is individually managed throughout the growing season to ensure the health of each vine. At harvest, we do something known as micro picks: tasting and then hand picking vine by vine, skipping rows if necessary, in search of the ripest fruit. Ultimately, our goal is to preserve the essence of the fruit that goes into our wines for optimum flavor profiles.
