Pinot Noir, ‘Campbell Ranch’, Anthill Farms

This vineyard is located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, near the tiny town of Annapolis, and is farmed by Steve Campbell. At approximately 750 feet above sea level, it sits right at the boundary of the marine layer, ensuring that the cool, coastal climate delays ripening well beyond the warmer vineyards to the east. The fourteen-year-old vines grow on sandy, low-vigor Goldridge soil, which helps reduce yields to near two tons per acre.
