Product Description

VINEYARD

In the late 1920, the Sangiacomo family purchased their first parcel in Somona—planted to fruit trees and then to grapes for winemaking.  In 1969, the Sangiacomo’s Green Acres vineyards was partial planted to the original Old Wente clone of Chardonnay.  In 1981, Saintsbury partnered with the Sangiacomo family and ever since has been receiving fruit from their Green Acres Vineyard. 

Appellation: Carneros, Sonoma

Clones:  “Catarina” Clone 4

Terroir:  Haire clay loam soil;  bordering the Sonoma Creek on the eastside and  Fowler Creek running through the vineyard. 

WINEMAKING

After night harvesting , the fruit from the Green Arces vineyard has a short distance to travel—just a few miles down Highway 121to Saintsbury. From there, the grapes are whole clustered pressed.  The wine is  barrel fermented with light lees.
