White Hawk Vineyard

The White Hawk Vineyard is located on a south-facing slope on Cat Canyon Road, two miles north of the town of Los Alamos in Santa Barbara County, California.

The vineyard is planted at a 900 foot elevation, 21 miles from the Pacific Ocean, a cool climate growing region where a Pacific Ocean fog typically cools the vineyard in the evening and early morning hours.

Soils at the vineyard are known as Arnold sand containing excessively-drained sand developed over soft sandstone. With 75 acres planted, some with Chardonnay, the vineyard is planted with Syrah clone #1 on 5c rootstock and Syrah clone #6 on 140 Ru rootstack. To accentuate the fruit, yields are kept under 2.5 tons per acre.

Stagecoach Vineyard

Stagecoach Vineyard is located on the southern edge of Pritchard Hill, east of the town of Oakville in Napa Valley, California.

First developed in 1995, this rolling mountain vineyard is one of the largest in Napa with elevations varying from 900 feet to 1,700 feet and a rocky, volcanic terroir.

One factor that makes this vineyard unique to Napa is a cool layer of fog over the hills in the morning, along with warm days typical of the Oakville area, allowing for optimal hang-time and great complexity for the fruit.
