NEVINA’S VINEYARD
Sonoma Coast

Our Occidental estate vineyard is less than 6 miles from the ocean at an elevation of 1,300 feet. It was planted in 2002 with 777 Dijon clones by Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir pioneer Scott Zeller, who still nurtures this vineyard today. It was formerly known as “Willow Creek Vineyard” and bottled under Thomas Brown’s Rivers Marie label from 2006 to 2010. It was acquired in 2011 and renamed Nevina’s Vineyard, and in 2012 Scott planted “Nico’s block” with 667 clones which now makes up about one third of the vines. With yields as low as 1 ton or less per acre, this special vineyard consistently produces award winning Pinot Noir that reflects a true sense of place indicative of the proposed West Sonoma Coast AVA, with distinctively bright acidity and characteristic flavors of cranberry and dark cherry.
