Family-owned by Martin, Dixie and Ulysses van der Kamp, this site sustains some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Sonoma County. Its terroir is unique in that fog banks from opposite sides meet and swirl overhead to form an opening through which the sun bathes the land to temper the cool mountain atmosphere, resulting in a unique microclimate. Myriad of old-vine and Dijon clones are planted across the property along with a small amount of Pinot Meunier, allowing the winemaker an opportunity to create a blended wine within the vineyard designate concept.
The van der Kamp family embraces natural farming and non-invasive techniques. The vineyard has a great amount of variation in soil types, slopes, and sun and wind exposure. Warm days are cooled by foggy nights allowing optimal conditions for rich flavor and balanced acidity to develop.
Hand harvested at night on September 24 and 27, including clones 777, La Tache, Old Vine and 113. After harvest the grapes were fermented in open top fermenters with hand punch downs.
