Vineyard
The 1880 designation acknowledges the year grapevines were first planted in the village of Trenton. The town center and general store are long gone, but Trenton is very much alive within the hearts and minds of the local community and grape growers along the Russian River.

Also called “Trenton Station,” the picturesque area is situated at the northern end of Laguna Ridge and about eight miles east of where the river empties into the cold Pacific Ocean. Morning and afternoon fog are frequent visitors in a climate dominated by the cooling properties of the ocean and river, ensuring the development of beneficial grape acidity.

The signature Goldridge soils — dark yellow, fine sandy-loams over fractured sandstone — control vine vigor so that photosynthesis is directed at grape development versus excessive shoot growth.

Martaella Vineyards were developed in 2007 with 42 acres of pinot noir clones Dijon and 828 in a high-density planting. The mix of location and cultural practices strikes an optimum balance of aroma, flavor and structure.
