Situated in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley, Dairyman Vineyard’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean results in a cool morning fog and afternoon coastal breezes that elongate the growing season. This gives us small, concentrated and flavorful berries, producing bright cherry characteristics, brown spices, and a keen minerality overlaid with a rich, velvety mouth feel. Once an old dairy farm, the pastureland was planted to Dijon clone Pinot Noir in 2000, preserving the deep agricultural history of the property.
Wine maker notes
I have been working with this vineyard since 2003 and have always been impressed by the quality of Pinot Noir this site produces, so much so that I took the fortunate opportunity to purchase the property in early 2013. The vineyard sits in the southern alluvial plains of Russian River Valley nearby the ocean, which results in cooling fog coming through the Petaluma Gap both in the morning and evening, along with afternoon breezes, helping to soften the effects of the warm sun. Once an old dairy farm and pastureland, this site has since realized its true potential as a prime, virgin Pinot Noir vineyard planted in 1989 to a mix of Dijon clones 116, 667 and 777, all grafted on low vigor rootstock, 101-14. Each vine was trained up on a vertical shoot position (VSP) trellis system, while limiting the growth with wide position spur pruning and regulating the leaf panel to less than 40 inches. The combination of low vigor rootstock and alluvial soil, stress control of the vines, and the cool coastal climate, create a long growing season with small, flavorful berries and concentrated phenolics.

For five generations, my family has lived and loved the Napa Valley. Our grandfather settled here in the 1800s and from that moment forward, we’ve grown to understand there is simply no substitute for an intimate knowledge of the land that only comes by ”living” in the vineyard. Working the land with our own hands has given us insights into California winemaking that can’t be found in any book or corporate farm manual. -Chuck Wagner We are the Wagner Family of Wine: Chuck Wagner continues to direct the world-reknown Cabernet program at Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley; Charlie is making exquisite Chardonnay at Mer Soleil in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County; Joseph is making fine Pinot Noir under the Belle Glos label in the coastal areas of California; Jenny is learning the ropes here at Caymus and ah yes, our longtime winemaker for Conundrum, Jon Bolta, continues his craft of making that puzzling, white wine blend.
