Santa Cruz Mountains
A hidden vineyard near the town of Aptos, a mere 4.5 miles from the Pacific. Pinot clones 115, 667, & 777 planted in the late 1990’s. Soil is a deep colluvial fan of sand & calcareous marine deposits with excellent drainage. Exchange of fog/sun ensures proper vine respiration & very even ripening. Maritime climate necessitates extended hang times. Farmed by Prudy Foxx, aka "the Vine Whisperer."
