Gap’s Crown Vineyard - Sojourn Cellars

Wines & Vineyards

Vineyards

Sojourn Cellars produces terroir-driven wines from exceptional vineyards around the North Coast of California farmed by Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon growers who share our commitment to high quality.

Gap’s Crown Vineyard

Sonoma Coast

Gap’s Crown Vineyard is situated directly east of and overlooks the Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road near Cotati at an elevation of 300-800 feet above sea level. This is an extremely rocky, well-draining site with northwestern exposure, which consistently produces powerful, concentrated Pinot noirs in a New World-style. Its proximity to the Petaluma Gap, from which its name is derived, effectively moderates temperature during warm spells in the summer and fall and enables the crop to hang into late September and October in most vintages.

We sourced our 2016 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay from three of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma County – Sangiacomo, Durell, and Gap’s Crown – with the goal of creating a cuvée that showcases the varietal’s exceptional character in this region. The vineyards were more balanced in 2016, bestowing the wines of this vintage with high levels of concentration and detailed aromatics.
