Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Pinot Gris Vines
The Vines at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard were planted in April of 2013. With our new planting in 2016, we now grow a total 88 acres of Premium Winegrapes. With the help of expert agriculturist; George Donati, General Manager of Pacific Vineyard, we have 5 clones of Pinot Noir, 2 clones of Chardonnay and a single clone of Pinot Gris. Pacific Vineyard Company specializes in Developing and managing vineyard properties in the Edna Valley. George is also a licensed California Farm Labor Contractor, as well as a member of the California Farm Bureau and various other grower organizations. The Edna Valley appellation has a global reputation for producing premium wine grapes, and our goal is to produce top notch Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes that are made into award- winning wines.
Our 2016 harvest produced a well-balanced and mature fruit from our 4th leaf vines. All fruit was sold to wineries who produce Premium Wines from Greengate Ranch & Vineyard. Chardonnay was sold to Center of Effort winery, Claiborne & Churchill winery, Mount Eden winery, Stephen Dooley winery, Glunz Family winery, and Edna Valley Vineyard winery. Pinot Noir grapes were sold to Claiborne & Churchill winery, El Lugar winery, Tatomer winery, Keola winery, Carucci wines, Stephen Dooley winery, and Wild Horse winery.
In 2016, Greengate Ranch & Vineyard became SIP Certified.
