Our estate vineyard outside of Occidental 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 pioneer Scott Zeller who still nurtures this vineyard today. In 2012 Scott also planted “Nico’s block” with 667 and that now makes up about 1/3 of the vineyard. This vineyard produced a wine that was named Pinot Noir of the year by the San Francisco International Wine Competition and was selected as a featured wine for the International Pinot Noir Celebration. With yields yields as low as 1 ton or less per acre, this special vineyard consistently produces award wining Pinot Noirs that reflect the true West Sonoma Coast with bright acidity and flavors reminiscent of cranberry and dark cherry.
