Coastlands Vineyard is the original planting of Cobb Wines, and contains some of the oldest (20-year-old) pinot noir vines on the Sonoma Coast. This 15-acre vineyard has elevations ranging from 900 to 1,200 feet, and sits on a ridge that overlooks the Pacific Ocean four miles to the west. The varieties of pinot noir at Coastlands include Pommard, Martini, Wadenswil and Mt. Eden. The extreme, marine-influenced weather of Coastlands produces outstanding pinot noir fruit. Periods of spring rain or heavy fog can cause the vineyard’s yields to be very low, and in some years virtually nonexistent.
The 6-acre Rice-Spivak Vineyard is near the town of Sebastopol, California, north of San Francisco, and several miles from the Sonoma County coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is planted to a combination of Dijon and Swan pinot noir varieties. These distinctive clones are planted in an unusual mix of sandy loam and volcanic ash.
