Bien Nacido Vineyard: The name means “Well Born” and this vineyard certainly has that going for it. Our “G” block section for “Old Vine” was planted in 1973 with the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. The vines are on their own roots, not grafted onto phylloxera resistant rootstock as is the case with most other vineyards. The soil is a mix of clay, loam and sand with enough sand to give the roots protection from phylloxera.
