"We own 90 acres of organically farmed vineyards in the heart of the Napa Valley. On the valley floor, on the Rutherford Estate, we farm a total of 74 acres of Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvingon vineyards. On the Mayacamas Estate, we have 16 acres of mountain vineyards.
Mayacamas Estate vineyards are carved from a second growth forest at about 1,100 feet elevation. Our southwest facing vineyards in the Mayacamas Mountains provide a distinctive "terroir" for our wines. In total, we have about 16 acres of mountain vineyards. On the Mayacamas Estate we began vineyard development in 1990 under the guiding hand of Napa Valley vineyard management legend, Laurie Wood. From 1998 to 2011, our vineyards were managed by Frank Leeds of Leeds-Pesch Organic Vineyard Consulting, a true pioneer in organic farming in the Napa Valley.
Today all of our vineyards are ably managed by Tony Fernandez, our director of agricultural operations, and he is advised by Garrett Buckland of Premiere Viticultural Services. All of our vineyards are farmed using organic practices certified by California Certified Organic Farmers." - Winery Notes
Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Tasting Notes
"Abounding aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, kiwi, and melon with hints of white flowers and fresh cut green grass. Slow cold fermentations retain the natural complexities of our Rutherford fruit, while developing a balanced mouthfeel that finishes with the crisp acid of a classic dry white wine that leaves you wanting more." - Winery Notes
