Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard

Pinot Noir

Vineyard Owners: The Sangiacomo Family

The Sangiacomos are true vineyard partners who understand and appreciate La Follette’s passionate pursuit of site-driven winemaking. At every turn, the family works to bring forth the very best of this exceptional vineyard. Through the years, the Sangiacomos 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 Roberts Road Vineyard is located at the base of the eastern foothills of the Sonoma Coast AVA, directly adjacent to Gap’s Crown vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. The "Gap" pulls the ocean breeze in through the Russian River Valley where it rolls over the foothills, moderating the healthy amount of sun this vineyard gets from its southwestern exposure. This combination of cool sunlight allows the vineyard to achieve full maturity while retaining softness to the Pinot Noir fruit.
