Estate Vineyard Acreage
Our estate property is 247 acres at an elevation of 1800 feet above sea level. The former sheep ranch has rich, red volcanic soil known for producing superb wine grapes. Vineyard plantings are now complete at 20 acres; varieties include Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. The balance of the land will remain as an ecological preserve. When creating the vineyard great care was taken to preserve old groves of madrone, oak, and redwood trees, including the "Sonoma County Heritage Tree."
