SANGIACOMO CATERINA VINEYARD
Our 2019 Sangiacomo Chardonnay comes from the Catarina vineyard located in the Carneros Region of Sonoma. The Sangiacomo family first planted this vineyard in 1982. The vineyard is bordered by the Sonoma Creek, with silty clay loam with gravel stratas. The grapes mature slowly while maintaining a vibrant acidity. The Robert Young clone thrives here. We partner with the Sangiacomo family, to ensure the highest quality fruit at harvest. The Chardonnay grapes natural flavors shine from this vineyard.
LAS AMIGAS VINEYARD
Our 2018 Carneros Pinot Noir comes from Las Amigas Vineyards, located at the southern end of the Carneros. It is the coolest climate area in the Napa Valley and is the birthplace of some of the finest Pinot Noirs produced. The ideal cooling breezes create a slow, balanced growing season needed to build complexity. This vineyard was planted in 2006. The Pinot Noir clones we carefully selected are 115, Pommard, 777, 459 and Calera, with each clone contributing a different and integral part of the assemblage. The clones are planted on two acres each in the vineyard. The clones create a unique single vineyard wine. Yields are kept low (on average a meager 2.5 tons per acre) to extract the highest quality expression of fruit.
SANGIACOMO ROBERTS ROAD VINEYARD
Our 2018 Sangiacomo Pinot Noir comes from Roberts Road Vineyard. This is our first vintage from Roberts Road, one of the most prestigious that the Sangiacomo family cultivates. The grapes came from block 4 on the west side. Located at the base of the Sonoma Mountain and bordered by Copeland Creek on the north, the soil is very well drained with silty gravel. Roberts Road was first planted in 1999 and now boasts fourteen combinations of clone and rootstock. The vineyard has a long, slow, and even, growing season with fog until mid-day. It is always one of the last vineyards to be harvested.
