Medlock Ames is located on 335 acres of rolling oak and madrone woodland in the South-Western portion of the Alexander Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). The growing season temperature here is similar to Bordeaux's – perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. The property also defines the eastern border of the Chalk Hill AVA, an appellation known for having the perfect soil structure for full flavored white varieties such as Chardonnay. Medlock Ames currently farms 56 acres of wine grapes. The rest of the acreage has been left in its natural state. The winemaking process begins in the vineyard with the choice of trellis systems, shoot positioning, water regimens, row spacing, rootstock and clonal selections. We decided to build our own winery located on our vineyard after producing Medlock Ames Merlot at other wineries for two years. Our goal was to control the winemaking process from grape to bottle. Building from scratch provided us the opportunity to examine other wineries Read more »
