Type: White Wine
Watson Ranch Vineyard is perched on a steep hillside overlooking the San Pablo Bay at the southernmost end of the Napa Valley. The ranch was named after early Napa attorney, Augustus Watson, who owned the property in the early 1900s. Soils at Watson Ranch are composed of calcareous clay over limestone. This soil type is extremely rare on the North Coast, but coupled with organic farming and cool windy conditions, it imbues this parcel with great potential to produce world-class Chardonnays that are consistently vibrant, with underpinnings of ample natural acidity and salinity.
