Vineyard History

The Martinelli Road Chardonnay Vineyard is one of the coolest vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley. The vineyard is located directly below the steep Jackass Zinfandel Vineyard on the original Martinelli family homestead ranch. Lee Martinelli Sr. planted this vineyard using a selection of Dejon clones.
