UV Lucky Well Vineyard
Lucky Well Vineyard was developed in 2008 by the late, famed vineyard manager Ulises Valdez, and continues to be farmed by the Valdez family at the highest level of quality. Ulises gave the vineyard its name in recognition of his luck finding a prolific well in an unexpected location on the property. The vineyard sits atop a knoll of Goldridge sandy-loam soils in the cool and foggy Sebastopol Hills. Sojourn’s blocks include Pommard clone on 101-14 and a distinctive suitcase Vosne-Romanée clone on 420A that blend harmoniously. The rows of Pommard clone run down a steep south east face and provide rich fruit character and full body, while the Vosne-Romanée block is perched on top of the ridge with less direct sunlight and provides exceptional structure with layers of dark red fruit flavors.
