The Bella Luna Vineyard is only 1 acre in size and was planted in 2000. In 2003, our first Pinot Noir won a gold medal in the San Francisco Wine Competition. The vineyard is located on Ken and Susan Churchill's ranch on Olivet Road in the Russian River Valley. The vines are planted on 4' x 4' spacing. The Pacific Ocean's cooling coastal influence, Sebastopol Sandy Loam soil composition, and Dijon clones selections of 115, 459, 667, and 777 all work together to produce the pure fruit forward taste that the Russian River Valley is famous for.

Buzz Words: Bolder tannin structure, bright fruit, great acidity, ripe fruit, warmer climate. Big, fat, rich, smooth
