About Valley of the Moon
Our estate was first planted in 1863, and currently showcases old vine Zinfandel vineyards dating back to the 1930s, as well as more recent plantings of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Chardonnay and Barbera. We employ low impact viticulture practices to preserve the diversity of our natural surroundings without compromising the quality of fruit. At Valley of the Moon each block from every vineyard is handled separately with the attention to detail required for premium winemaking. The results are high quality grapes that reflect the unique Sonoma soils in which they are grown.
