Laurel Hill Vineyard

Planted: 1990 (Chardonnay), 2002 (Pinot Noir) Our Laurel Hill Vineyard is in the Sonoma Valley appellation. Planted on the Mayo family estate at the foot of Sonoma Mountain, this vineyard is the source for grapes that are used to produce the Mayo Family Estate Chardonnay. In 2000 we planted two additional acres of Pinot Noir. The vineyard itself incorporates a variety of terrain including a sunnier hillside plateau and a valley element. The vineyard is exposed to sunlight from mid morning though the early evening with the hillside receiving longer exposure. Yields increase in this vineyard correlating to the descent into the valley block. Watering cycles, pruning and leaf pulling are specific to the two areas of the vineyard.
