Lucky Well Vineyard, just outside of Occidental, Ca in the Sonoma Coast AVA.

32 Winds sources just the right grapes farmed by conscientious growers for our premier wine collection. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the terroir and climate in which the vines reside.

Diamond Mountain Vineyard, Calistoga CA (Cabernet)

Diamond Mountain is located in the Mayacamas Range in the northeastern side of Napa Valley. Because of the high elevation of this area, the vineyards are allowed to grow and ripen without the influences of the fog that typically covers the valley floor during the growing season. The vineyard is over 30 years old and planted in rocky volcanic soil and consequently produces a low volume of high quality fruit; a much more concentrated, powerful intense fruit - exactly what you need for a great cabernet.

Martinelli Farms, Santa Rosa CA (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Rosé)

The Sonoma County based Martinelli family is well renowned for their vineyard locations and farming practices. We are thrilled to be collaborating with them and making fruit from their vineyards. We have chosen the Lolita Vineyard for our Chardonnay, the 7 Mules Vineyard for our Rose of Pinot Noir, and the Moonshine Vineyard for our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.

Lucky Well Vineyard, Occidental CA (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay)

The Lucky Well Vineyard was planted in the fall of 2007 by Ulises Valdez to our specifications. The vineyard itself lies in the rolling hills 3 miles to the north of Occidental and just a few miles inland from the Pacific Ocean on the "true" Sonoma Coast. The vineyard is ideally located above the fog line to maximize sunlight for ripening, but in a cool enough location to ensure a long growing season - a perfect example why Sonoma Coast produces such fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. It is an organically dry-farmed vineyard with tightly planted vines, planted to the Shot-Wente clone.

Platt Vineyard - near Bodega CA (Chardonnay & Platt)

This extraordinary hillside vineyard is situated along the ridgeline, and rises above the morning fog with views to the Pacific Ocean.  All of the vines are planted in the desirable Goldridge sandy loam soils. The cool coastal temperatures allow for the slower ripening of small crops with intense flavors and very low sugar levels. This is a premier vineyard that consistently produces the top notch Burgundian style wines we strive for.

32 Winds, Healdsburg, CA (Syrah)

Located in the Dry Creek Valley, this Estate vineyard produces delicious and aromatic Syrah wines that we serve primarily at our tasting room. Dry Creek Valley has warmer temperatures to fully mature the grapes during the growing season.
