West Sonoma Coast
The Walala Vineyard is perched along a ridge 1,200 feet above sea level, just inland from the rugged Sonoma coastline. In its position above the dense fog line, the vineyard experiences the moderate temperatures that give grapes longer hang times for optimal flavor and ripeness. Rocky soils provide excellent drainage throughout the growing season and result in distinctive varietal character. Sojourn blends Dijon clones 113, 115, 777 and 828 from this site for a wine of depth and intrigue that highlights its extreme growing conditions. Price Family Vineyards took ownership of this vineyard in 2014, and Atlas Vineyard Management masterfully handles the daunting task of extreme coastal winegrowing.
