"This is an immaculately groomed vineyard under the supervision of owner Stuart Bewley. It has innovative clones, state of the art rootstock and superior trellising on superior soils."Scott Shapley, Roessler Cellars
The vineyard is located in far northern Mendocino County on the 6,000-acre Alder Springs Ranch. Just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the site is an ecological gem as well as the ideal place to grow grapes.
The hilly landscape climbs to 4,000 feet and offers nearly perfect growing conditions: bright sun, cool nights, phenomenal low-vigor soils. Since 1993 we've planted about 140 acres of grapes at elevations ranging from 1,700 to 2,700 feet.
Our obsessive, hands-on attention to each vine, yields small, complex, and intense flavorful berries. Alder Springs' Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Rhone varieties have won a devoted following among top boutique wineries, including Patz & Hall, Behrens & Hitchcock, Arnot-Roberts, and Copain.
