2019 JOSEPH PHELPS FREESTONE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
Joseph Phelps Vineyards produced Napa Valley Pinot Noir from 1973-1983, but Joe was never quite pleased with the style, so he headed further West to find a more suitable location on the Sonoma Coast. Considered too cold for grape growing, Freestone had very few planted vineyards in the late 1990s, but the Goldridge soils were enough for the Phelps family to take a bet, purchasing their first vineyard in the area in 1999.
The vineyard team spent five years adapting to farming in a completely different environment, putting meticulous efforts into the proper clonal selection, effective pruning, training, and trellising methods before finally harvesting the first crop. As in Napa, Joseph Phelps Vineyards places utmost importance on their exceptional quality, so in 2007 the Freestone Winery was built to vinify their Sonoma Coast fruit on-site and maintain the extraordinary level of craftsmanship recognized worldwide.
