We began our label with wine produced solely from my dad’s vineyard in Alexander Valley in 1991. Since the late 1990’s, we have included cooler-climate loving varieties from sites in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. We are pleased to introduce you this year to our newest relationship: the Fort Ross Vineyard, first planted in the late 1990’s, right on the edge of the continent. Due to the nearly vertical slope of the western sea-facing ridge and its elevation (around 1500 ft.), this vineyard enjoys the better aspects of this location…generally moderate temperatures during the growing season, tempered by, but above the fog. Our initial Pinot Noir and Chardonnays from this vineyard’s first vintages are included in this offering.
