The steep slopes of our estate vineyard have been passed on from family to family. Over five generations of farmers have cultivated the legacy and pedigree of these volcanic soils. We are honored to be stewards of this legacy and tell their story through our wines.

St. Andrews Vineyard

OAK KNOLL DISTRICT

Originally planted by John Kongsgaard, the St. Andrews Vineyard is the nucleus of our regenerative and promiscuous farming efforts. The vines are interplanted with apple trees to increase the health of the soil, providing better quality wines. Special insectary rows of cover crop feed the pollinators such as bees and butterflies and there is also a grazing pasture for our sheep and chickens.

Quartz Creek Vineyard

OAK KNOLL DISTRICT AVA

Originally purchased in 1979 by Tom Burgess, this was a 50-acre Chardonnay vineyard known as Triere, a term for “select,” or “choice.” Now called Quartz Creek, this is one of the most geologically diverse vineyards we own. The soils are part of the alluvial fan that swept down from the Mayacamas, along with uplifted marine sediments, and a high proportion of quartz. Planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

Sorenson Vineyard

NAPA VALLEY AVA

First planted in 1870s by Swiss-Italian immigrants, Sorenson Vineyard has served as the beating heart of Burgess for more than 150 years. Climbing 800-1000 feet above sea level, this vineyard is carved into the western-facing slopes of Howell Mountain, overlooking the Napa Valley below. The landscape is dotted with large boulders on the “Konocti Series Volcanics” soil, a very densely compacted volcanic ash, as pines and redwoods surround the vineyard, becoming immersed in morning fog during the harvest months.

Clos Abeille Vineyard

ST. HELENA AVA

Nestled in the west-facing benchlands of the Vaca Mountains, the Clos Abeille Vineyard is the epicenter of our regenerative farming movement. Named for the bees, Abeille, that inhabit our first Napa Valley apiary next to our specifically designed pollinator gardens, this vineyard has been planted with Cabernet Sauvignon since 2002 on Kidd gravelly loam soil.
