Peters Vineyard

Starting in the early 1980s, the property was slowly planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, representing one of the very first plantings of these two varietals in the hills south of Sebastopol. The southern facing slopes help to form the northern boundary of the Petaluma Gap, the main artery for the cooling marine winds blowing inland from the Pacific Ocean.

Our Chardonnay, from an older block of Clone 4, benefits both from its sunny southern exposure and the influence of cool, marine air, creating wines of intense flavor and bright acidity.
