Our 2020 Seven Ranchlands viognier is a stunner, with notes of mango, guava, and pineapple and incredible richness and texture, a must drink for anyone who loves bold fruit.

Most of the grapes for this viognier come from our Catapult Ranch Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap with the other portion coming from Diamond Pile Vineyard, 10 miles north in the same region. Catapult vineyard is situated at the base of Wild Cat Moutain and has heavy soils, vigorous vines, and vibrant fruit characters. Diamond Pile has shallow clay into rhyolite, has more exposed facing slope and produces wines with elegance and purity. The 2020 vintage was warm and early, showcasing very fresh fruit and bright acidity

Grapes are handpicked before dawn and bought to the winery separately where they are destemmed and pressed. Settled for 48 hours before racking. The Catapult portion was inoculated with yeast to enhance fruit whilst the Diamond Pile portion was allowed to begin fermentation naturally in barrels to enhance the nuances of the vineyard. After fermentation, the wine was aged in neutral French oak for 6 months before blending and bottling.
