Awards & Accolades
From our vineyards in the heart of the Fountaingrove District. This wine is rich, smooth, densely concentrated, and lovely. Enjoy! - Nancy
The Fountaingrove District is inspired by the legacy of California’s original “cult winery.” There are 500 acres of vineyard in the 38,000-acre appellation and five wine producers in the Fountaingrove District, which became Sonoma County’s 17th AVA in March 2015.
Tucked into central-eastern Sonoma County, the Fountaingrove District is surrounded by the Russian River Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley, and Napa Valley sub-appellations including the Spring Mountain District.
Viticulturally, it also fills the gap — classified as Warm Region II in the Winkler heat summation scale, it’s more marine-influenced than Alexander Valley and areas of northern Napa Valley, but warmer than the Russian River Valley. The terrain is mainly rolling hills, with soils derived from Sonoma Volcanic and Franciscan Formation bedrock.
