Ferrington vineyard is located just north of the town of Booneville in Anderson Valley, part of Mendocino County just north of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. This 75 acre vineyard is planted with Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc, all of which have received consistently high marks from top wine writers and publications such as Robert Parker, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Specator Magazine.
"Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the season, filling the water table to capacity and replenishing soils. A mild spring brought bud break at the normal time, and vintners reported small berries with excellent color. A hot summer culminated in a Labor Day weekend heat wave that caused some vintners to move up their harvest dates by a week or so. The grapes endured the heat and once cooler weather arrived, fruit was able to mature at a gradual pace. Vintners have a positive outlook on the 2017 wines, comparing the vintage to 2003, 2013 and 2014. The fruit has excellent color, pronounced flavors and high quality across varieties."—Wine Institute
