William Wesley Vineyard

Brice purchased this plot of land as a gift for his eldest son Victor. Victor developed and planted the vineyard and named it for his Grandfather, Brice’s father, Air Force Colonel William Wesley Jones.

The steep coastal hillsides of the William Wesley Vineyard are influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean with daytime breezes that ride above the coastal ridges and fog-shrouded valleys below. Very cool nights permit the grapes to retain their acids and give way to long, bright, sunny days that allow the grapes to ripen slowly in near-perfect balance, intensifying their flavors, and reflecting the vineyard’s maritime terroir in this powerful Pinot Noir.

The vineyard is planted on the northern outcropping of Goldridge soil, William Wesley Vineyard’s daytime temperatures are slightly cooler than the Russian River Valley, because it is at a higher elevation and the steep hillsides reduce the vines’ yield significantly. Both factors deepen and intensify the mountainous character in the William Wesley, contributing to the longer aging potential of this wine.
