Le Boeuf

Surrounded by towering redwoods and bordering the pristine Wilder Ranch State Park, this idylic Old-California site was planted in 1974 by Dr. Burney Le Boeuf, an Emeritus UC Santa Cruz professor who happens to be world's authority on Elephant Seals. Blocks of heritage clone Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grafted to St. George rootstock are planted on gently-sloped decomposed granite soil. Strong maritime influence, rocky soil, and old vines drive extremely low yields resulting in wines of immense concentration, acidity, and character.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to take over stewardship of this vineyard from the Le Boeuf family and with an eye to preserving this incredible site we have converted to all organic viticulture, and have budded the 1.5 acre pinot noir block, which was originally planted to chardonnay, back over to heritage clones of chardonnay in the spring of 2020.
