The 30 acre Diamond Dust Vineyard site in the Alexander Valley lies just east of Geyserville. This bench land site faces southeast in a beautiful bowl. This unique topography protects the vineyard from the wind. Its old, low vigor vines consistently produce fruit with more power and depth than typically found in the appellation. The early morning fog and deep gravelly loam soils are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
