Our vineyards are meticulously farmed for great looking, great tasting fruit. Both Syrah blocks produce grapes yielding highly concentrated fruit flavors and extremely rich aromatics. We farm sustainably and hand pick very clean. The very high quality Syrah grapes are grown in mountain and hillside vineyard blocks in the Chalk Hill AVA. The mountain block is on the cool, windy, front peaks of the western slope of the Mayacamas range and contains volcanic soils. The lower elevation block soils are cobbled clay. Some samples available. Small lots are OK.
Windsor Oaks Vineyard is a beautiful 710-acre estate with varietal blocks grown on low fertility, rolling hillsides with major elevation changes among the blocks. Lower sections of the ranch start at 200 feet above sea level while several hillside blocks reach as high as 1,000 ft. Most blocks are south facing on well-drained, stony cobbled clay or volcanic soils. Across the 250 acre vineyard, Windsor Oaks produces 18 different varietals. The entire property is included in the Russian River Valley and Chalk Hill AVAs. The fruit produced is suitable for ultra-premium, luxury, and higher valued wines. Our vineyard team employs intensive farm practices that consistently meet the high standards of our grape buyers and winemaker.
