Ellenbach Vineyard sits just four miles from the Pacific Ocean in Annapolis, the northernmost part of the “True” Sonoma Coast region. Located on steep remote, coastal hillsides, Ellenbach is positioned just above the fog line and is defined by its proximity to the Pacific and its unique 800 feet elevation. Very cool nights allow for ideal preservation of acidity and long, intense, sunny days permit grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. A variety of clones are planted in distinctive Goldridge soil, which differs from the region’s tilted plates and volcanic soils. These well-draining Goldridge soils combined with the vineyard’s steep hillsides further the struggle of each vine, which helps to add complexity and concentration to the resulting wines.
