At roughly 850 feet of elevation, the Pigasus Vineyard sits in both the Bennet Valley (southeast end) and the Sonoma Mountain AVAs (the western end). This family-owned property produces fine wine grapes including Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The 10-acre site is a beautiful rolling hillside plot on volcanic soil. The climate is perfect: warm days and cool nights. We’ve long agreed with the adage that “wine is made in the vineyard.” You can’t make great wine without high quality fruit, and that’s what we strive to produce at the Pigasus Vineyard.
The vineyard was originally planted to Merlot on 100-R rootstock in 2000. Over the years, certain sections have been budded over to Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon..
