Sonoma County Wineries – Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery
AVA: Fort Ross-Seaview
Open to Public: Yes
By Appointment: Yes
Fort Ross Vineyard consists of 32 small mountain vineyard blocks that cling to the sunny coastal mountain ridges overlooking the ocean. Less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean, Fort Ross Vineyard is one of the closest, if not the closest vineyard to the ocean in all of California. The vineyard rises in elevation from 1200 to 1700 feet above sea level. Ranging in size from one-half to two acres, each small vineyard block has its own particular terroir and is planted with rootstocks, varietals, and clones or field selections best suited to reveal the terroir, varietal typicity and clonal attributes.
