SIERRA FOOTHILLS - Baby Rattlesnake Vineyard
Wines of Character and Tradition
Firefall wines are unique Rhone and Italian varietals grown on the family Baby Rattlesnake Estate Vineyard in the appellation of Fair Play located on route E16, honoring dedication to family and love of winegrowing.
ANDERSON VALLEY - Conzelman Vineyard
Conzelman Vineyards are positioned on the valley floor at 350 feet of elevation in clay-loam soils where the cold nights and fog stimulate the formation of desired acidity. Two pinot noir clones, Pommard and 667, were planted on 101-14 rootstock in 2001 and join forces to produce well-structure, aromatic wines with broad mid-palate flavors.
BENNETT VALLEY - Moaveni Vineyard
The 10-acre planting is situated along Matanzas Creek near the valley’s southwest end. At 770 feet of elevation, the mountain benches contain speckled loam soils that join forces with the Pommard clone to produce grapes translating to powerful wines.
RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY- Hawk's Roost Ranch
Five-plus acres of the Mariafeld clone grow on Hawks Roost Ranch where rows were plotted on an east-west grid in 1998. Vines receive abundant sunlight to attain masculine wines with solid structure.Read More
RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY - Bacigalupi Vineyard
Bacigalupi Vineyard is situated along the “middle reach” of the Russian River Valley AVA, one mile west of the Russian River and two miles south of its confluence with Dry Creek. During the growing season, the climate is typically warm-to-hot at noon, but mitigated by afternoon breezes, perpetually cool nights, and repeating patterns of morning and evening fog.
Russian River Valley - Martaella Vineyard
Martaella Vineyards were developed in 2007 with 42 acres of pinot noir clones Dijon and 828 in a high-density planting. The mix of location and cultural practices strikes an optimum balance of aroma, flavor and structure.
SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS - Escolle Vineyard
The entrance to Escolle Vineyard lies at 200 feet of elevation, but the property climbs another 300 feet into the highlands. Overlooking the town of Gonzales, it was planted in 2008 using 11 pinot clones on five different rootstocks. Fruit was picked from the gently sloping upper bench where the union of climate, soils and Pommard clone produces small crops that translate to complex wines.
