Black bears roam the Russian River headwaters and hillssurrounding the higher elevation vineyards that grow theexceptional grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc. This northern territory is a land of extremes, with cold nights and hot days. The wine has a distinctive kiwi fruit character, complemented by bright citrus zest and lemon grass notes. This wine is the unique expression of a carefully nurtured piece of land, made manifest in each bottle. We do without conventional pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, treating the soil as a living, life-giving system. Our winegrowing practices create special wines, while sustaining our environment, the place where we live, and the people who live here.
