Sitting at 1000 feet above the Sonoma Valley, the Chuy Vineyard was planted in 1964 by legendary viticulturist Jesus "Chuy" Ordaz. Situated on a band of rocky, low nutrient soils with little to no water. The dry-farmed, head-trained Wente clone vines are known for tiny grape yields derived from "chicks & hens" (irregular clusters). Farming grapes here is difficult but the rewards are the long-lived, soil-driven wines that endure.
