Sonoma County, California
Bordeaux varietals thrive on steep terrain and volcanic soil and our Cooley Ranch is precisely the kind of landscape they love with elevations ranging from 500 to 2,040 feet.
Cooley Ranch is blessed with red volcanic soil that's unusual in this part of the world. Also, due to being above the fog line, Cooley warms up during harvest to allow for hotter growing temperatures and extra tannin development. All of this provides beautifully ripened fruit and balanced acidity.
For ROWEN, we carefully source grapes that reflect the best of our superior lots of these Bordeaux varietals which flourish in more rugged conditions and capture the distinctive influences of high elevation and cool Pacific breezes.
