Perfect growing conditions for perfect Chardonnay
This vineyard lies in the Green Valley region which is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA. The vineyard’s terroir is very cool due to its close proximity to the ocean and the sandy-loam soil is well drained, providing perfect growing conditions for superior Chardonnay.
The ranch has been the cornerstone of our finest Chardonnay for many years, producing wines with a distinctive citrus/lime flavor. The cool terroir gives the fruit crisp acidity which allows us to do extended sur lie aging without the oak character overwhelming the wine.
