Vineyards


Pinot Noir

Riddle Vineyard - Occidental, California

Jim Riddle owns and farms this vineyard just Northeast of Occidental on Stoetz Lane, just seven miles from the ocean.  Overlooking Green Valley to the East, Riddle sits just at the morning fog line and sees the sun from late morning until coastal winds return the cool evening air.  Planted in 2007, the vines are now fully mature and producing pristine fruit.  We have two blocks at Riddle, clone 115 planted on the steepest portion of the vineyard, and the Pommard clone.

 

Chardonnay

Platt Vineyard - Freestone, California

A special site and planting five miles from the ocean overlooking the tiny village of Bodega, California.  Platt's extreme exposure and cold climate produces wines of great intensity, salinity, tension and acidity.  Yields are naturally moderated by the cold weather during fruit set, lending significant concentration to the fruit.  Our block of Old Wente clone looks at the ocean and is a favorite place to take guests.
