The Land

While each individual grape varietal certainly has its own distinct characteristics, nothing should have more influence on the wine produced from that grape than the land it grows on. Climatic conditions and soil composition affect the vine from root to berry, making a wine unique and allowing it to tell a story of its origin and place. It is this type of expression we let shine through— so that the tales of appellations from Marin County to the Russian River Valley can be appreciated for their striking differences.

Easkoot's first release in 2009 hailed from the Chileno Valley Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. This stretch of land that spans from the North Coast AVA into parts of Sonoma County AVA. It is also located in Marin County or West Marin to be more precise.

The 2012 vintage will brought two additional vineyard designated releases, both from Sonoma: The Suacci Vineyard Pinot, from tiny Blucher Valley in the Russian River AVA and our Desmond Vineyard Pinot from the Russian River AVA's Green Valley.
