Vineyard:

Our small lot wine is harvested from carefully selected blocks that are estate grown and sustainably farmed.  With an east-west valley orientation, the site gets warm days and cool nights that are influenced by fog and breezes from the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean. The grapes are handpicked and sorted at harvest time in order to ensure premium quality.

Fermentation:

The Viognier was barrel fermented in second use French oak barrels while the Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel.

Aging:

Both varietals were aged separately for two months, then combined and aged an additional three months in second and third use French oak barrels.
