This vineyard is situated in a hilly vein of old terraces with close proximity to the marine influences of the San Pablo Bay. It receives morning fog and mild afternoon temperatures for a long, even growing season.
This vineyard was planted in 2001 and 2006 and field budded with a variety of Syrah and Viognier selections. We started working with this vineyard in 2009 and beginning with the 2011 vintage, is under a long-term Estate Vineyard contract.
