In 2014, after a years-long search for the perfect Sonoma Coast site to plant a small Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard, we were introduced to an 8 acre plot that was Located on 200-acres of sprawling ranch land outside Sonoma County’s historic coastal village of Freestone. Comprised of Goldrich soils and tucked at the base of west-facing hills, just four miles from the Pacific Ocean, the site is ideal for producing cool-climate Chardonnay. We named the vineyard after the original land owner, Jasper O’Farrell - one of California’s most consequential pioneering settlers - and began planting in 2015. To date we’ve planted 2.1 acres of Chardonnay to the Hyde Wente/Musque and Dijon 95 clones. The 2018 Jasper Freestone Vineyard Chardonnay represents the first release from the vineyard.
