Savor this unique wine sourced from a hidden gem known as Mendocino Ridge.  This non-contiguous isolated appellation is the epitome of high elevation coastal farming.   The rugged and steep hillsides require costly and extreme farming techniques, but the result is grapes which are highly sought by premium winemakers.  Low vigor vines produce small sized, loosely packed clusters with tiny berries creating wines with unique flavors from this distinct microclimate – just nine miles from the Pacific Ocean, as the crow flies . . .  Above the fog and closer to the sun, with all its glory, Mendocino Ridge is truly about Farming in the Wilderness™.
