The historic Olivet Lane Vineyard was planted by the Pelligrini family (3rd generation Sonoma grape growers) in 1975 and is one of the oldest existing plantings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. Wines from this vineyard produce some of the highest rating and most sought after vineyard designate Chardonnays in the country.  The vineyard is situated north of the Petaluma gap which allows cooling fog to settle in almost daily during the growing season. This fog coupled with the chilly Russian River Valley nights creates a truly cool climate and lengthy growing season.
