The vineyard sources for our Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir come from three distinct areas of the AVA: Brooklime Vineyard, situated at the top of the Sonoma Mountain ridgeline on Goulding clay-loam soils; Roberts Road Vineyard, located at the base of Sonoma Mountain on Clear Lake clay soils, and Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, seated at the southernmost edge of the AVA on Diablo Clay soils.
2021 meteorological data: A dry winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.
