Castello di Amorosa Acquires Pillow Road Vineyard
Calistoga winery adds distinguished Russian River Pinot Noir vineyard to estate vineyard holdings

[Castello di Amorosa] Calistoga, Calif. (October 2, 2015) – Castello di Amorosa announced today that it has purchased a 12 acre Pinot Noir vineyard on Pillow Road in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley in the Green Valley appellation.

With this acquisition, Castello di Amorosa expands its presence in California’s renowned North Coast wine region to include 33 acres planted to Pinot Noir in vineyards located in a number of key American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) including a 12-acre vineyard in Boonville, a 4-acre vineyard in the Sonoma Coast and a 5-acre vineyard in Los Carneros.

“The Pillow Road area is known for producing exceptional quality Pinot Noir and we look forward to making elegant, luxurious wines from this vineyard,” said Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking. “We are excited to add Pillow Road Pinot Noir to our expanding portfolio of distinguished Pinot Noir,” he added.

The Pillow Rd. vineyard site benefits from its proximity to the Pacific Ocean breezes and the Russian River’s cool foggy mornings and sunny, warm days, providing the perfect setting for growing Pinot Noir.  The vineyard is planted with 115, 777 and Pommard 4 clones in Gold Ridge sandy loam soil, with 9 by 5 spacing. The vineyard will be farmed sustainably under the direction of Castello di Amorosa’s Vineyard Manager, David Bejar.

The winery anticipates the first release of wine from this vineyard to be the 2015 vintage which will be released in 2017; the Pillow Road vineyard’s grapes will become one of the several vineyard-designated wines in Castello di Amorosa’s portfolio.
