im and Jackie Reuling own this seven acre parcel in Forestville. The climate is very cool with ample marine influences converging from the Russian River and the Petaluma wind gap. In conjunction with the Reulings, we planted the vineyard with the finest field selections collected from a Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits. This vineyard was the source of only the 2007 and 2008 vintages of our Le Caprice Pinot Noir. In the 2009 vintage, we transitioned the sourcing of Le Caprice to our Seaview Estate Vineyard.
