Alder Springs & Campbell Ranch

Location: Laytonville, CA

Wine Tasting

AVA: Mendocino County
Elevation: 2100 ft.
Distance to the ocean:
9 miles due west
Soils: Cassabonne-Wholly, 12 inches of loamy organic material on top of decomposing sandstone and uplifted ocean bed.

Alder Springs is a winemaker's paradise. It's a geographical anomaly in that there are virtually no other vineyards around it for miles in any direction. It's high in elevation and benefits from warm days, cool nights and well-draining hillside soils. From the beginning when it was first developed, the vineyard has been farmed naturally in-house. Owner Stuart Bewley is steadfastly committed to continuously improving practices in every aspect of farming and being a steward to the land he has cared for since 1991.

This pristine parcel of West Sonoma County has been organically farmed since it's first stages of development in the early 1990s. Vine age is 20+ years across the 2 blocks of Pinot Noir, with a new block of Pinot Noir currently in development. Topography is undulating hillside.

The surrounding area around the vineyard is redwood forest, an ancient apple orchard, and beautiful organic vegetable, fruit and flower gardens. The name "Chouette" is the French word for a baby owl, which if you are lucky, you might hear in the foggy mornings while walking the rows.
