2017 Van Der Kamp Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.5L
Van Der Kamp Vineyard
Welcome the 'new kid in town' sourced from one of the oldest Pinot Noir plantings in Sonoma County: Van der Kamp Vineyard. This stunning, high-elevation property has been farmed for over 100 years. Martin and Ulysses Van der Kamp purchased this historic, Sonoma Mountain vineyard in 1989 and have been working the land ever since. Ulysses and his father feel a spirtual and emotional connection to the land, and view themselves as caretakers as much as they do farmers. Ulysses' tender care and concern for the site is one of the main reasons that we decided to create a single-vineyard bottling of Van der Kamp Pinot Noir. They take a natural and non-invasive approach to farming. The vineyard itself has unique soil types, sun and wind exposure, and various slopes and pitches. A drive around the Tibetan prayer flag rimmed vineyard sets the tone for intiguing and thoughtful sips to come.
