Terra de Promissio Vertical
Meaning "Land of Promise", this sustainably farmed vineyard from the Petaluma Gap produces ageworthy Pinot Noirs full of bright floral notes and finesse. Enjoy a vertical of our 2014, 2015, and 2016 vintages!
The soil, southwest sun exposure, hill elevation, vine density, the Petaluma Gap’s fog and the wind from Pacific Ocean allow the grapes to have a slow maturation and extended hang time, which allows optimum ripeness. These ideal conditions for the Pinot Noir grapes result in intense flavors that makes exceptional and age-worthy wines.
