Eight miles from the Pacific Ocean, at an elevation just above the coastal fog, our 14-acre Treehouse Vineyard is set in the heartland of the Russian River Valley. Previously, this land was used for grazing cattle, which means there was no need for a source of water. To this day, water must be carted up to the vineyard to water the vines which were first planted in 2006. Bounded by cypress trees and majestic redwoods, this site is a natural masterpiece, shaped by sun-kissed days and unique iron-rich soils that create a Pinot Noir with profound depth and complexity.
Treehouse Vineyard produced a sensational Pinot Noir in 2017, with alluring aromas of black plum, ripe, wild raspberry and baking spices. Seductive flavors of fresh blueberry and black cherry bloom upon the palate, revealing delicate notes of French oak and spice which frame a complex, lingering finish.
