Situated at a lofty elevation (1,300-2,000 feet) above Boonville, the Champ de Rêves vineyard site features a patchwork of small blocks planted to seven different Pinot Noir clones. Decomposed sandstone provides superb drainage and mineral uptake while naturally restricting vine vigor and yields. A dream of a Pinot Noir vineyard, its continued evolution will confer greater complexity to the wines with each new vintage.
