The best Sonoma County has to offer
Our Pamela’s Un-Oaked Chardonnay explores the diversity of the Sonoma County winegrowing region. We source grapes from vineyards in the regions of Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Carneros, and the Russian River Valley, which encompass an array of microclimates, soil types, elevations, and terroirs. This allows our winemaking team the freedom to blend a unique and engaging Chardonnay that expresses the flavor profile that Pamela herself not only approves of – but LOVES.
Sonoma County’s climate is strongly defined by maritime variations, which create ideal grape growing conditions. The cool days and nights contribute to layers of fog, which slowly make their way into the valleys. Daytime temperatures average 71F, while nighttime temperatures hold steady in the 40s. During the springtime, hard frosts are unusual in the region. The hottest summer days rarely go beyond 84F, and harvest season remains moderate with little rainfall. Throughout the year, the region rarely experiences extreme temperatures or hard rain, creating ideal conditions for grapes to thrive.
Bounded by the Pacific Ocrean and a range of low mountains, Sonoma Couny’s landscape provides unlimited potential for grape growing and winemaking. The geography of the region is a balance of redwood forests, viticulture and orchards.
The eastern boundary of the region is marked by the Mayacamas Mountains, which were created by tectonic upheavals of coastal plates. The mountains are contrasted by southern rolling hills and higher coastal hills along the western boundary. Russian River winds its way through the lush valley of vineyards, bringing the fog through Healdsburg and into Alexander Valley. The river continues through Green Valley of Russian River Valley and empties into the ocean between Jenner and Goat Rock Beach.
