Facts of Note
Christened new wood open top fermenter
This Estate vineyard lies within Green Valley, in the southwestern corner of the Russian River Valley. Here, gently rolling hills harbor some of the coolest conditions within the appellation - fog, breezes and fresh nights help vines balance their ripening with warm afternoon sunshine. A heralded property, Keefer has been in the Kosta Browne family since 2005 and we are drawn to the terrific natural acidity and elegance we and in the grapes we farm here. Classic Goldridge soils offer Pinot Noir an ideal home.
In 2013, we were delighted to strengthen our relationship with this iconic Pinot vineyard by purchasing 20 acres. Marcy Keefer continues to be at the helm of Keefer Ranch and we are proud to continue to have her as part of our grape growing family.
