More than 25 wines from Durell Vineyard have earned 92+ points, making the site one of Sonoma County’s most sought-after vineyards. Durell sits on the southeastern edge of the Sonoma Coast appellation–thirty miles east of the Pacific Ocean, 10 miles north of the northern stretches of San Francisco Bay, and just south of a 2,400-foot mountain range. Rocky, basalt soils–low in magnesium but rich in minerals–make this vineyard ideal for growing premium Chardonnay. Sojourn sources grapes from two distinctive blocks planted to the Old Wente Chardonnay clone. One block is an original planting high atop the hill, and the other is a newer planting along an old rocky creekbed.
