Ridgeline Vineyard

Ridgeline Vineyard

Our Ridgeline Vineyard, located at the very northern tip of the Alexander Valley, is the jewel in the crown of our Sonoma County vineyard holdings. In addition to being one of our most scenic estate vineyards, it also boasts a menagerie of other delights, such as: a 50 plus year old fig tree which produces some of the most insanely delicious figs I have ever tasted, olive trees, some incredible wildlife such as deer, pigs, and hawks, and quite a few old agave plants which we have been threatening to try and convert into tequila one of these days. On top of all this, it produces some of the most intense and finely wrought Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Alexander Valley we have tasted. These wines make up the core of the Decoy Cab, Merlot, and Red wine programs.

The entire ranch is irrigated by the 3 acre pond, pictured above, which is fed by two natural springs coming off the mountain. As you can see, towards the end of the year it gets fairly low, and managing our irrigation down to the minimum required is absolutely key to having our water last the entire season.
