Peay Vineyards is located in the far northwestern corner of Sonoma County approximately 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean near Sea Ranch. The vineyard is situated along the coast, but not on the very first ridge. We have a partially obstructed avenue formed by the Wheatfield Fork of the Gualala River that allows for some fog and copious cool air penetration. The vineyard sits on a hilltop that is not way up in the air, but just at the top of the fog level, low enough to be very cool, but high enough not to be too cool and wet to grow grapes. We think it is the perfect combination of climatological factors. California has a diverse range of microclimates. Our hilltop vineyard also expresses many subtle variations depending on whether it faces south, southeast or west; sits high on the hilltop in the afternoon breeze with full sun; or rests lower on the slope with greater fog influence and less sunlight. But make no mistake, this is pretty cool climate for grape growing. We cross our fingers hoping that the Read more »

  • We're doing a long weekend in Russian River and Napa this weekend. Flew into San Francisco yesterday with no problems.

  • Fox - I've done that tasting a number of times. Depending on who you pick from CA, you can win, place, show, or bomb out. I've tasted through a number of Hermitage wines, doing tastes of the 97s, 99s, 2005s and 2008s, and comparable Cote Rotie, which I have more of. For the CR, the Guigal B&B is often the one to beat IMO - it's just a good wine ... Read More

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

  • I have a question. Why is it that with the holidays, people start stocking up on Pinot Noirs? Was there someone who said that one has to pair holiday food (turkey, stuffings, ham etc) with Pinot Noir?
