Sangiacomo Green Acres Vineyard, Carneros
We have partnered with the Sangiacomo family for close to 40 years. Our chardonnay lots come mostly from their “Green Acre” vineyard which was their first planting in 1969. Set between Sonoma and Fowler Creeks, this former pear orchard has loamy clay topsoils, with some alluvial subsoils. It keeps the perfect balance of moisture-retaining qualities coupled with deeper penetrating root systems. We regularly find high-toned floral aromatics, oyster shells, and a supple orange oil characteristic on the palette.
