Single Vineyard, Single Varietal Wines

Seeking a true expression of single vineyard Pinot Noir

A cool layer of marine fog flows through the Petaluma Gap and settles just beneath the Clouds Rest estate vineyard.

A cool layer of marine fog flows through the Petaluma Gap and settles just beneath the Clouds Rest estate vineyard.

It’s our goal with every vintage at Clouds Rest to produce wine of optimal quality. Pinot Noir is the heart and soul of this estate and all of the grapes are grown “au domaine” on Sonoma Mountain within the Sonoma Coast appellation. A cool sea air flows toward our vineyard from the Petaluma Gap, allowing a maritime layer to settle just below the Clouds Rest estate.  These natural conditions enable the preservation of acidity and allows for a full day of ripening that is essential for Pinot Noir. Our Chardonnay grapes are sourced from the Sonoma Coast appellation and our Sauvignon Blanc Musqué hails from the ‘Shop Block’ parcel of the renowned Dutton Ranch, in the Green Valley appellation.
