Sapphire Hill Vineyards

In 1989, longtime friends and winery partners searched Sonoma County for the perfect site to grow the cool-climate Varietals of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the tradition of the great Burgundian vintners. The Sapphire Hill Vineyard, located in the Middle Reach of the Russian River Valley appellation and named for the cool, sapphire-blue nights of the area, was the perfect choice.
As they set about the task of planting 32 hillside acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and later Syrah grapes, they employed the latest technology of vertical canopy management, drip irrigation, and high-density planting techniques. In the early years the grapes were sold to such prestigious wineries as Rodney Strong, Sonoma-Cutrer, La Crema, and Murphy-Goode Estate Winery.
