Richard’s Family VineyardSonoma Valley
Richards Family Vineyard is nestled in the Schultz Valley near Annadel State Park in Sonoma Valley. While generally perceived as a warmer region, this east-facing isolated parcel buttressed to the west by the Sonoma Mountains is surprisingly cool. This young planting Sonoma Valley vineyard has already produced several vintages of wine with great character. The rocky soils once provided footing for a lavender farm. Most of the lavender was replaced with Syrah, but several rows remain, leading us to believe they leave their own mark in each vintage.
Richard’s Family VineyardTerroir
The epitome of how great grapes and patience reward the winemaker. The fruit requires little intrusion with the exception of gentle foot treading. After fermenting with 100% whole cluster, native yeast, and an extended time on the skins, the wine is pressed to barrel where – with patience – it evolves into something we hope to be extraordinary. We typically must wait anywhere between 28-36 months before witnessing the true seductive nature of this wine.
