Viognier - El Dorado County
Our Viognier comes from a beautiful vineyard in El Dorado County surrounded by oak trees, where the well-draining decomposed granite soils of the Sierra Foothills, combined with the 2,000+ feet elevation, create an environment where our Viognier grapes can develop significant aromatics and well defined structure.
Marsanne/Roussanne Vineyard - Contra Costa County
The San Joaquin River Delta region outside of Oakley provides an outstanding, albeit surprising area for these Rhone varietals. The sandy soils and warm days and cool night influenced by the Delta pulling in cool air from the San Francisco Bay allow these grapes to develop the citrusy and waxy aromas, while the well-draining soils provide significant structure, which will allow these wines to age beautifully for many years to come.
Dry Creek Valley - Syrah Vineyard
Our Syrah comes from the eastern bench of the Dry Creek Valley where the well-draining volcanic soils and significant diurnal shift bring haunting aromatics, flavors, and beautiful structure to the Durrell clone Syrah grown (and immaculately farmed) on this 5 acre block from this "benchland" site.
All of our vineyards are family-owned and operated, sustainably farmed with organic sprays and oils, hand harvested, and treated with the utmost respect. We believe these growing practices, along with a light-handed approach in the cellar, produce the most vibrant, balanced, and interesting wines, reflective of the time and place in which each was made.
