Wines & 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.
Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road near Cotati is Sojourn’s flagship Pinot noir vineyard. We have been sourcing fruit from this vineyard since the 2004 vintage and feel very grateful to the Sangiacomo Family for their longstanding commitment to realizing the potential of this special site. The vineyard was originally developed in 1998 on an old creekbed. Several factors combine to make this an extraordinary site for growing world-class Pinot noir: well-draining soils, climate, and clonal diversity. The vineyard is located in a depression at the western base of Sonoma Mountain where cool air and fog from the Pacific Ocean get trapped, especially in the summer and fall, allowing for uncommon hangtime without sacrificing acidity and balance. Dijon clones 115 and 777 combine with Pommard and Swan to consistently produce distinctive wines.

Wine from this Vineyard
Our 2011 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir is nicely balanced with seductive aromas of dark cherry, black tea, and earthy forest floor. Textures are creamy and silky with an extra level of elegance and finesse. The cool 2011 growing season resulted in complex flavor development at slightly lower sugar levels and thus lower alcohol levels. The resulting wine is impressive and represents the strengths of both the vineyard and the vintage.
