In 1858, Emil Dresel brought the first Sylvaner cuttings to America and planted them on what is now the SCRIBE Estate in Sonoma, CA. In homage we planted one acre in 2007 on the southwest facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. In 2016 we expanded our plantings, bringing our total planted area three acres. Our sustainably farmed Sylvaner vineyard is composed of both volcanic tuff and Huichica loam soil.
2020 meteorological data: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines' growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of verasion. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
20.3 °Bx | pH 3.41 | TA 9.0 g/L | 11.0% alc.
