Fox Creek Vineyard Pinot NoirCarmel Valley
The Fox Creek Vineyard is a stunning planting situated at 1100’ on a remote ridge above the Carmel Valley in Monterey County. The vineyard was planted in 2006 to Dijon clones 667 and 115 in well drained granodiorite clay loam that lends itself perfectly to growing world class Pinot Noir. This meticulously farmed vineyard produces tiny, compact clusters of fruit that deliver soaring aromatics and concentrated, crystalline flavors inflected with salinity from the influence of the nearby ocean. The long, cool growing conditions at Fox Creek, coupled with organic farming techniques allow for pure varietal expression at low potential alcohol. In short, we are thrilled to have found this site and look forward to many more years of working with this gorgeous fruit.
