Yolo sandy loam—an alluvial soil


Chardonnay clones include UCDavis 04 and two chardonnay musque selections, Rued and Spring Mountain. The musque selections have a floral, slight muscat-like character.  The plantings from 1990 are on AXR-1 rootstock and are 14 X 8.  The new block was planted in 2006.  They are on O39-16 rootstock and are 12 X 8 spacing.


The vineyard runs along the bank of the Russian River.  The vines are in a north-south orientation, so they get excellent east-west sun exposure.  The site is low lying and morning fog  settles over the vines.  This keeps the vines cool, so they retain beautiful natural acidity.
