Originally planted in the late 1980s by the owners of Rex Hill, it is now owned by Cooper Mountain. The farming is being converted to organics and biodynamics. The vineyard is dry farmed. It has multiple soil personalities--volcanic clay to alluvial. Jay Somers works with 1 acre of the Dijon clones of Chardonnay.
