Vineyard Owners: Jeff & Kristina Boudreaux
Located in the heart of the Russian River Valley of western Sonoma County near the small town of Graton, Boudreaux Vineyard combines all the elements necessary to grow cool-climate Chardonnay: gently sloping hillsides of well-drained, marine-based soils, and intense light, moderated by the cooling influences of coastal fog and the nearby Russian River. The estate vineyard, planted to the rare and coveted Montrachet clone from Burgundy, uses organic and biodynamic farming principles by maintaining and encouraging biodiversity with sheep, beneficial pollinating and insect attracting-flowers, bees, and a diverse vegetable and herb garden.
