We are located approximately 120 miles north of San Francisco, in the southwestern corner of California's Mendocino County. The blanket of fog that ordinarily curls up from the coast most summer nights and then burns off during the warm dry sunny days allow the vineyards to produce grapes that slowly develop and ripen. We are one of the coolest of the state's so-called cool-climate wine regions. This is ideal for growing varietals such as Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay. We have planted about 15 acres of Pinot Noir--using five different clones, and an acre of Gewurztraminer. Most of the vineyard is on south facing hills with a combination of well-drained sandy loam covering an underlying clay loam. The Navarro River forms our southern boundary and brings the fog right up to our door. Along with our grapes we grow strawberries, olives, plums, figs, tomatoes, a variety of leafy vegetables, lavender and a whole lot of raspberries. Read less

Like Londerandrsquo;s regular Pinot, this two-vineyard blend is light in body and silky. Itandrsquo;s also lusher, with a dense core of cherry, cola, rhubarb tea and spice flavors. Itandrsquo;s a little flabby, but makes up for it in delicacy.

This beautiful coastal pinot has a provocative balance of richness and delicacy, a blend of grapes from Ferrington vineyard in the southwestern end of Anderson Valley and Valley Foothills in the cooler northwestern reaches. The red fruit is crisp, with an acidity as brisk as biting into a red apple. Itandrsquo;s also full and potent, with the scent of an apple orchard in the fall. Serve this with any richly textured fish, from salmon to grilled eel.

Ripe and polished, with a rich, fleshy core of plum and wild berry fruit that’s well-focused, long and complex, with hints of nutmeg and hazelnut. Firms up on the finish, with enough tannins to merit short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2008.
