Charles Vineyard Older Vintages
The Charles Vineyard is located on an ancient riverbed along Anderson Creek southeast of Booneville in the Anderson Valley. The Charles family has been in Boonville on this property since 1950, when the land was a lumber mill, then a cattle ranch, and finally converted to vineyards in 1999. Its unique location makes it ideal for Pinot Noir; while not on the coast, the valley opens to the ocean allowing the cool marine layer to make its way through the valley, giving it a coastal influence, sometimes resulting in as much as 50 degree fluctuations in temperature in a single day. This vineyard is meticulously tended and contains clones 114, 115, 777 and Pommard on three different root stocks.
