Lula Cellars Estate Vineyard
The Lula Estate Vineyard is located in the Anderson Valley’s revered “Deep End” outside the town of Philo on Highway 128. Purchased in 2012, this beautiful 22-acre property is the perfect setting for producing elegant varietal Pinot Noir grapes. There are 15 acres planted, 14 acres of Pinot Noir and 1 acre of Gewürztraminer. With 5-acre blocks planted in 2013, 2015, and 2017 this compact vineyard has varying elevations and soils that has already begun to produce highly acclaimed Pinot Noir fruit. Add to this the variety of clones planted, it equals endless possibilities for creating remarkable and very distinctive Pinot Noir wines.

Peterson Vineyard
The Peterson Vineyard, planted in 1999, is a hidden jewel located in the mountain town of Compthe. This outstanding eight-acre vineyard has four different Pinot Noir clones: Pommard, Dijon #115, Dijon #777 and Dijon #667 clones. Situated eight miles southeast of the coastal village of Mendocino, the vineyard benefits from a cool marine climate. The wines made from this vineyard are darker in color and a bit more full-bodied.

The Costa Vineyard, planted in 1998, is a prized source of Pinot Noir grapes, located in the mountain town of Comptche which sits 700 feet above sea level. Situated eight miles southeast of the coastal village of Mendocino, the vineyard benefits from a cool marine climate. The Pommard clone provides a great foundation of fruit flavors and the Dijon #115 gives the finished wine its wonderful aromatics.

Fashauer Vineyard
Sitting above 1,200 feet in the Mendocino Ridge AVA, the Fashauer Vineyard was established 20 years ago from Zinfandel grapevine cuttings sourced from the nearby DuPratt Vineyard. Dry grown, the grapes enjoy a unique terroir. Randomly inter-planted with Carignane adds to this unique Zinfandel.

Valley Foothill/Day Ranch Vineyard
Ordways Valley Foothills is one of Anderson Valley’s heritage vineyards.  Purchased by Gilman Ordway in 1981 it is the largest independent vineyard in the valley.  Located in the ‘sweet spot’ of Anderson Valley, a short distance from Philo and the Lula Estate, the climate is not quite as warm as Boonville yet considerably warmer than the Navarro area.  Ordway’s Valley Foothills takes every opportunity to tread lightly on the environment and is a certified fish friendly vineyard.  

The Valley Foothill Vineyard has a great reputation for producing outstanding Chardonnay grapes. Our wine is produced off a hilltop planting of Chardonnay clone 548.

The Day Ranch Vineyard provides the grapes for our Rosé of Pinot Noir that is produced off a special 1976 planting of dry grown Pinot Noir.
