Planted in 1997, our vineyard consists of eight acres Pinot Noir and four acres Chardonnay. Grown six miles from the Pacific ocean on a southwest facing hillside and swale, vines are surrounded on three sides at 600 foot elevation. Microclimate has cool foggy evenings and nights, clearing mid morning to warm sunny days. The sandy loam terroir enhances our wines with a distinct signature identity.
We have 100 Italian olive trees dotting the grounds of our estate. Our olive tree collection consists of 50% Leccino, 25% Fratoio, 15% Maurino and 10% Pendolino.
