In 1999 we planted our first vineyard, intending only to be growers. But as the vines grew it seemed only natural that we would want to complete the whole process and decided also to make wine.
Our vineyards are located in the Russian River Valley Appellation viticultural area. Marino Vineyard is located on Hall Road in Santa Rosa on the Wright Soil Series. Our Estate Vineyard is located in downtown Forestville and planted in Goldridge soil with east facing slopes.
In 2002, we hired Vineyard Manager Jim Pratt, of Cornerstone Certified Vineyard Management Company, to plant and farm the Crinella Estate Vineyard and to farm the Marino Vineyard, which had been planted in Sauvignon Blanc in 1999.
Our public tasting room will be located in Forestville Town Square (currently in development) and will be open daily to visitors interested in tasting our remarkable wine .
