Our 45 acre Trenton Road Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County. Planted to a variety of Pinot Noir clones including Pommard, 37, and Swan, this vineyard is ideally situated to benefit from morning fog and afternoon sunshine. Grapes were harvested on September 28, 2018.
The 2018 growing season was one of the most consistent in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to prime fruit set and ideal growing conditions to set the stage for producing the perfect Pinot Noir. The temperate weather allowed for an extended hang-time and fully balanced ripening.
