The Story

There are a few key factors that set the Rockpile AVA apart from neighboring appellations, one of the most distinctive being an elevation requirement. Vineyards must be at an elevation of 800 feet or higher to be included in the Rockpile AVA. Another feature that contributes to this unique terroir is the proximity to Lake Sonoma. The lake holds its temperature, creating an inversion layer that sucks the fog down to its surface. This keeps these high elevation vineyards virtually fog free, with great sun exposure. Additionally, the extreme terrain of steep hillsides and shallow soils cause the vines to struggle, resulting in low yields of highly concentrated fruit. Perched over 1200 feet in elevation above Lake Sonoma, these Ridgeline blocks sit above the fog and have the ideal combination of soils, sunshine and coastal influence.

About Davis Family Vineyards

Brand Story

Guy Davis and his family winery are an iconic part of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, based in Healdsburg. His winemaking began in the late 80s, and for 25 vintages the Davis Family label churns out stellar Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and increasingly a broader range of wines from Mendocino to Monterey County. Multiple vineyard sources allow for wine variety via micro-climates.
They were farming sustainably & organically decades ago, and consistent organic-sustainable practices in farming and winemaking (native yeast, no fining, filtration) remain a central philosophy.
The whole family is passionate in their pursuit and believe wine is an essential element in a rich and wonderful life—adding a delicious layer to both meals and to friendships.
