This spectacular vineyard sits along the Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon clone 548 and 95. Once a spectacular apple orchard, we pay homage to the Martinelli Family and the history of the site by naming the wine “La Pommeraie” – French for apple orchard.
Indigenous yeast fermentation in 44% new French oak barrels and extended aging of 16 months on lees has produced a wine with exceptional complexity.
