  • Winemaker: Chris Pittinger
  • Farming: Sustainable, organic practicing
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Terroir: Located in the tiny hamlet of Annapolis about 5 miles from the ocean, Campbell Ranch is carved out of a redwood and pine grove perched on a ridge at 750′ elevation. It takes the brunt of coastal fog and breezes that usher in from the coast through the Gualala River drainage epitomizing the rugged and remote coastal vibe of the West Sonoma Coast.
    The vineyard is managed by the highly respected Ulises Valdez, who took over the property after it was tied up in a long-term contract for years by one of the big boys. Now this highly coveted Pinot noir has found its way into the hands of small, passionate, and quality-driven winemakers, and we are thankful to get a few tons every year.
  • Vinification: 3-5 day cold soak followed by a native yeast fermentation that lasts a week or so. The cap is gently punched down by hand 1-2 times daily. Usually around 40% whole cluster inclusion depending on the vintage. Once in the barrel (typically less than 20% new), the wines are left to rest on their gross lees.
  • Aging: Around two years in less than 20% new barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with low SO2.
  • Tasting Note: round texture, beautiful fruit, great acidity, and a clean, lengthy finish that lingers on the palate.
