Conzelman Vineyards are positioned on the valley floor at 350 feet of elevation in clay-loam soils where the cold nights and fog stimulate the formation of desired acidity. Two pinot noir clones, Pommard and 667, were planted on 101-14 rootstock in 2001 and join forces to produce well-structure, aromatic wines with broad mid-palate flavors.

The entrance to Escolle Vineyard lies at 200 feet of elevation, but the property climbs another 300 feet into the highlands. Overlooking the town of Gonzales, it was planted in 2008 using 11 pinot clones on five different rootstocks. Fruit was picked from the gently sloping upper bench where the union of climate, soils and Pommard clone produces small crops that translate to complex wines.
