Vineyard Owners: The Sangiacomo Family
The Sangiacomo’s are true vineyard partners who understand and appreciate La Follette’s passionate pursuit of site-driven wine making. At every turn, the family works to bring forth the very best of this exceptional vineyard. Over the years, the Sangiacomo’s have allowed La Follette to make alterations to the rows they farm for us effectively allowing us to farm their vineyard as if it is our own.
The Green Acres Vineyard is located in the southeast corner of Sonoma Coast AVA, where the bay plays a critical role in moderating temperatures creating ideal growing conditions. The cooler climate in the southern part of the county preserves the acid in the Chardonnay to balance the fruit intensity typical of the Old Wente Chardonnay clone.
