2012 Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

We produce this Chardonnay usng a combination of Old Wente clone from the Sangiacomo Vella Ranch and clone 95 from the Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road. These vineyard parcels are both perfectly suited for growing Chardonnay, with cool climates and well-drained soils. The Old Wente Clone selection of Chardonnay at Vella Ranch was planted in 1997 and is known to produce distinctively small clusters, low yields, and result in elegant complex wines. Clone 95 from Roberts Road, planted in 1998, adds minerality and a pointed vibrancy.

Sangiacomo Vineyard

Sonoma Coast, Petaluma Gap

Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road near Cotati has been Sojourn’s flagship Pinot noir vineyard since 2004. This exceptional site was developed in an old creekbed at the western base of Sonoma Mountain. In summer and fall, cool air and fog from the Pacific Ocean get trapped here, allowing for uncommonly long hangtimes without sacrificing acidity and balance.
