Our Anderson Valley vineyards, Annahala Ranch and Apple Barn, sit on former apple orchards on the banks of Anderson Creek just north of Boonville, home to prime pinot noir conditions. These two ranches are planted to a wide range of clones and rootstocks for diversity and complexity. Slight differences in climate—Annahala is closer to the coast and spends more time in fog, while Apple Barn receives longer stretches of sunlight—yield superb pinot noir grapes of distinct expression from each site.
