Annadel Gap is a one-of-a-kind place.
Find us at the northern tip of Sonoma Valley.
Our gap is quietly nestled between Sonoma Mountain and Mount Hood. This makes us cooler than average, with morning fog covering our vines until noon most days, breaking in to sun early afternoon, to be cooled off in the evening by the winds off the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Where the fog keeps us cool.
In a cool climate grapes grow slowly and gently, allowing them to develop more intense and concentrated flavors over time. This gives our wines a richness and depth of character that is unique to us and we want you to be able to enjoy.
Wines reflect nature so we farm biodynamically.
We have always honored the land, and thoughtfully farm to preserve its authenticity. In 2014 we were awarded biodynamic certification by the governing body Demeter. We believe biodynamic practices not only enhance the health of the land, but also allow us to create wines that are pure expressions of their home.
Our soil is special.
We are blessed with a unique soil composition for this region. Even though we are designated in the Sonoma Valley AVA, our soil is similar to that of the famed Gold Ridge soils found throughout the Russian River Valley. Our four primary soil types are Yolo Silt Loam, Manzanita Gravelly Silt Loam, Arbuckle Gravelly Loam and Yorkville Clay Loam.
In the end, it’s about the wine.
We wanted to make world-class Rhone & Burgundian wines so we choose Annadel Gap Vineyard as our home. Today we have 23 acres under vine and because of our unique climate and diverse soil composition, we are able to biodynamically farm 9 different varietals, and some very specific clones of Pinot Noir, Syrah and Grenache.
