Gran Moraine® is located in the Yamhill-Carlton district, a highly-regarded AVA in the Willamette Valley and home to many of Oregon’s finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards. The vineyard estate benefits from several of the distinguishing features of the Yamhill-Carlton District: the cooling effect of ocean breezes through the Van Duzer Corridor, a relatively dry climate due to its location in the rain shadow of the Coastal Range, and the shallow and particularly well-drained Willakenzie series of ocean sediment soils.
White Hawk is planted on a southern facing slope at 900 feet elevation just outside the town of Los Alamos in Santa Barbara. It benefits from the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean, and is known for its jammy fruit, subtle earth and peppery notes.
This renowned Oakville site is known for its well drained clay loam soil that produces small, concentrated fruit clustersand powerful wines.
