Site matters to Gregory James.
We grow and source our grapes from vineyards located from the best sites in Sonoma and Napa for each varietal that we produce, from the cool-climate pockets along the Sonoma Coast to the world-renowned Napa Valley.
For Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, we work with vineyards from the West Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley, which are located within the maritime reach of the Pacific Ocean. Here, the cool foggy nights and mornings dramatically shroud the varied terrain producing grapes of remarkable intensity and character.
Our Zinfandel is hailing from the Dry Creek Valley, located in northern Sonoma County right outside the town of Healdsburg. This region is home to some of the oldest vines in the United States. In the late 1800s, Italian immigrants planted Zinfandel, with several original plantings still producing spectacular fruit. We are proud to craft Zinfandel, from both old and newer vines, that express the complexity and character of this region and it’s rich history.
Finally, we are delighted to share Cabernet Sauvignon from the famous Napa Valley. The soil and climate of Napa have been proven time and time again to produce some of the most unique and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. We are honored to work with such a highly regarded vineyard.
