Vineyard History

This Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was planted in 1978 by Lee Martinelli, Sr. on sloping bench land soil that overlooks the winery and tasting room. The rocky soil type helps the vines to self-regulate crop load and enhance concentrated fruit flavors in the wine. The vines are heavily thinned to bear three pounds of fruit each.
