A small, family-owned vineyard in Sebastopol in the Russian River Valley AVA. The 9-acre Bravo Toro Vineyard was acquired in 2000 and gradually replanted and refurbished. The vineyard is planted to Chardonnay (Dijon 95 on 5C) and Pinot Noir (Dijon 115, 667, 777 on 101-14). Grapes from this vineyard are to be sold to a local established winery (previously sold to Chasseur and Envolve).
There is also a 2/3-acre home vineyard planted to Chardonnay (95) and Pinot Noir (777, 115, 667, Pommard) in 2000-2003. In 2007 and 2008 the Chardonnay was grafted over to Pinot Noir and clone VCR-18 and Swan selection were added. A nano winery at the house began processing grapes with the 2008 vintage to produce a small amount of estate Pinot Noir.
Tasting by appointment.
