Introducing Weeks Vineyard

09.05.14

Weeks Vineyard The above photo is a shot from our recent acquisition, Weeks Vineyard. Situated west of the city of Sebastopol in the Russian River Valley, this hillside vineyard enjoys shade from the towering, adjacent forest at the base of its sloped terrain and is a mere ten minutes away from our EnRoute Graton Vineyard. We chose this site for its proven ability to produce high quality Chardonnay. The cooler daytime temperatures, coupled with cool evenings, make this particular area ideal for this grape variety. The Goldridge sandy loam found on the property lends itself to producing vines of moderate size that facilitate the necessary concentration of flavors and flavor components. So far, the fruit is holding up nicely and we anticipate starting harvest in about two weeks – 2014 will be the first harvest from this vineyard. Weeks is a remarkable property, and we believe the fruit has incredible potential for “Les Brumeux”. We look forward to sourcing Chardonnay from such a wonderfully picturesque location.
