This Castello Estate vineyard is located just south of the town of Boonville in Anderson Valley, a
cool-climate region famed for Burgundian and Alsatian varieties. This 34 acre ranch is planted to Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling. Our Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of five clones from this vineyard: 777, 115, DRC, Calera, and 667.
The 2015 vintage was also of high quality, but very low yields in many varieties. The harvest will also be
remembered as one of the earliest ever. The relatively dry and warm winter resulted in small clusters of grapes with highly concentrated flavors yielding wines of deep, rich flavors and excellent quality with deep color and lovely fruit aromas.
