Estate

The Chalk Hill Estate is located at the convergence of a number of diverse climates, soils and terrains in the northeastern hills of Sonoma County. The Chalk Hill AVA is a sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley, the epicenter of Pinot Noir growing and winemaking. While the estate is a bit warm for top quality Pinot Noir, our Trenton Road vineyard, located a few miles west of the winery, is ideally situated. Trenton’s 45 acres of vineyard are planted with 6 highly regarded clones of Pinot Noir, primarily Mt. Eden, Pommard, Swan and Dijon 777.
