Allen Vineyard

The Allen vineyard is leased and farmed by the Rochioli family, and can therefore technically be labeled "Rochioli Vineyard." In addition the obvious considerations of meticulous farming, location, climate and soil, there may be another factor which contributes to the success of wines produced from the Allen and Rochioli vineyards. These vineyards may be among the oldest vineyards in the Russian River Valley to be planted to the one of the highly desirable "Pommard" clones (alongside Dijon 115, Wente, and Clones 76 & 15 respectively). Conversely, the vast majority of Pinot Noir vines planted in California during this time were "Martini" clone … a sparkling wine clone not well suited for still red wine production.
