SENSE MAKER

Sonoma Coast

Healdsburg is not a coastal town, but the ocean impacts our wine production more than you’d think.

For many Californians, the ocean is part of our identity. It’s a magnetic force that draws you in: the salty air, the jagged rocks, the sound of waves crashing on the shore. 

But that’s not the only reason it holds a special place in our hearts. The coastal air is extremely important when it comes to wine-growing in Russian River Valley. How? The cool air from the ocean affects the microclimate and the soil, lending itself to cool climate varietals, like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
