Accessible only from Sonoma, yet located in Napa, Lovall Valley is an elevated secluded valley just above Carneros on the Napa – Sonoma county line. Lovall Valley sits tucked away between Sonoma Valley, Carneros and Mt. Veeder. This is the coolest region in all of Sonoma and Napa and combined with the loamy-clay soils ideal for Bordeaux varietals produces a merlot with naturally small berries for greater intensity of flavor.
Our vineyard sits in the center of the valley on pebbly clay loam soils near the creek which supplies moisture, extending the growing season. Our unique growing environment combined with our passion for full-bodied red wine sets the stage for a varietal merlot that is not at all lighter or softer than cabernet sauvignon; quite the contrary.
