Vineyard Profile: State Ranch

by on January 9, 2013

We’re continuing our vineyard profile series (last month we looked at our John C. Sullenger Vineyard), with State Ranch. Located on the valley floor just east of the town of Yountville, Nickel & Nickel has produced Cabernet Sauvignon from this vineyard since 2006. State Ranch is currently the only vineyard we produce wines from in the Yountville AVA.

Situated on either side of State Lane—a road that runs north off of the Yountville Cross Road—the State Ranch vineyard neighbors several other excellent Cabernet producers.

Over the course of this month, we will be talking with Viticulturist Aaron Fishleder and Winemaker Darice Spinelli about characteristics of the vineyard and wine that make it distinct.
