Steiner Vineyard – a truly unique and beautiful site, meticulously farmed by proprietor Nate Belden. Located at 1000′ elevation on the northwest face of Sonoma Mountain perched over Bennett Valley. It’s weather is greatly influenced by the wind and fog pouring through Petaluma Gap which allows the vines to slowly ripen to it’s fullest potential. As a result of it’s a marginal climate and ancient volcanic soils, we believe it’s an ideal vineyard for producing amazing wines.
SOIL: Volcanic clay and sandy loam mixed with basalt rock
Jemrose Vineyard – Located in the cool, fog-prone Bennett Valley, Jemrose Vineyard is composed of benchland soils formed from the volcanic ash of Taylor Mountain, Sonoma Mountain, Bennett Ridge and Bennett Peak. Due to it’s unusually cool climate, steep slopes and fluctuating elevations, we believe it’s one of the premier growing sites in Sonoma County.
SOIL: Rocky volcanic clay loam
Ghielmetti Vineyard – Tucked away in the western corner of Livermore Valley, situated on a sloped, alluvial bench with well-draining, “outwash” shaly loam soils from the surrounding hillsides. 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean and ranging in elevation from 500 to almost 1000 feet above sea level, the vineyard is impacted by cool foggy mornings, warm midday temperatures and early afternoon breezes. In our opinion it is the premier growing site in Livermore.
SOIL: Primarily gravel and shaly loam
