From our Honey B Vineyard

Our Honey B Vineyard on Cuttings Wharf Road in the Los Carneros AVA is a 20 acre parcel planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Gewürztraminer. We have owned the vineyard since 2008 and we love this cool climate region. Our Wente Chardonnay clone is the backbone of our white wine program while the Calera clone brings richness to our Pinots. Both the Merlot and Syrah are part of our Fraternity Red Wine Blend while the Gewürztraminer finds a home in a late harvest expression. We've also embarked on Blanc de Blanc style of sparkling wine made from the Chardonnay. The expansiveness of this region is extraordinary while the mild climate and low elevation provide consistency and predictability to our farming practices. We love the opportunity to stretch ourselves beyond the Cabernet Sauvignon wines that are the hallmark of our family's brand.
