Recently , the Seghesio Family began an extensive vineyard replanting program that sought to grow intriguing varieties in the most suitable locations. Vermentino was planted in 2008, with 2011 marking the first vintage of this wine. While Vermentino’s exact origins are unclear, it thrives along the Mediterranean coasts of France and Italy, and is well suited to the Russian River Valley’s marine influenced climate.
Our Estate-owned Keyhole Ranch in Russian River Valley is home to our all of our Italian whites. Located in northern Valley, this vineyard’s microclimate is tempered by cool coastal breezes and frequent summer-morning fog. The soils are composed of gravel and clay loams.
