winemaking

Our approach to winemaking is one of precision and style. Simple in theory, yet challenging in practice, we strive for the perfect balance of elegance and soulfulness. Head winemaker Megan Baccitich guides the process from grape to glass, producing wines that both reflect her vision and capture the essence of the vineyard.

estate vineyard

Planted around ten years ago, our 24-acre estate vineyard is exclusively planted to Pinot Noir (five clones – 115, 667, 777, 828 and Pommard 4). Ideally situated at the north-east end of the Petaluma Gap, the climate is ideal for this variety.

The estate experiences moderate daytime temperatures, even by Sonoma Coast AVA standards, allowing for prolonged hang-time (for phenolic maturity) while maintaining fresh pulp (for balanced acidity). During the growing season, the average summertime diurnal shift (difference from the day’s high and low temperatures) is 30-degrees. A blanket of fog settles over the vineyard most nights during the growing season, bringing welcome cool air and moisture. Refreshing breezes during the day, chase away the fog and dry the area, limiting fungal pressures. This cool wind also leads to thick skins in the grapes, meaning more color and structure for the wines.

Outcroppings of basalt on the estate, which were once quarried for the streets of San Francisco, and sandy/gravelly clay provide for good soil diversity and water retention.

Petaluma Gap

Each year we set aside a few lots of the estate Pinot Noir that we feel reflect the best of the vineyard. A combination of fruit expression, balance, and structure set the reserve apart from the estate Pinot Noir.

topographic overview of the Ron Noble Estate Vineyard

steiner vineyard

Originally planted in the early 1970’s by pioneer Dave Steiner, this world-class vineyard site atop Sonoma Mountain was replanted in 2005 by the Belden family.

With an elevation of 1,000 feet and cool climatic conditions, the site is ideal for varieties such as Chardonnay. Situated west of the Santa Rosa Plain, it is directly in the path of the pacific marine air migrating inland via the Petaluma Gap.  This Marine influence results in cool winds on summer days, and a fog that can start in the early evening and linger late into the next day’s morning.

The intensity of sun at this higher elevation tends to result in thicker grape skins, imparting a special degree of intensity, complexity, and texture.

Located on the north side of Sonoma Mountain, Steiner Vineyard is only 20 acres, but it produces some of the best grapes in the area. We are fortunate to have access to the small chardonnay block.
