Pinot Noir & Chardonnay
Russian River Valley

OUR VINEYARD:
We are located on Starr Road in the Russian River Valley. The position of our vineyard and seasonal creek make a pleasing visual corridor. A mixture of native oak and eucalyptus trees follow the waterway and the vines, comprised of a field blend of Dijon clones 115, 667, 777, receive full sun throughout the growing season.

HARVEST AND WINEMAKING:
Our grapes are hand picked during the early morning hours to ensure arrival at the winery while still cool. The fruit is sorted, gently destemmed and placed into a stainless steel open topped fermentor. Cold soak is followed by hand punch downs over a period of several days. At dryness, free-run juice and gently pressed must is delivered directly into barrels. Malolactic fermentation occurrs in barrels and the wines is stirred monthly until bottling.
