Gap’s Crown Vineyard sits near the town of Cotati at an elevation of 300 to 800 feet, where it overlooks the Sangiacomo Vineyard just to the west. This is a high-end, hillside vineyard  that has established itself as a premium source for top rated Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines vintage after vintage. This extremely rocky, well-drained site with northwestern exposure benefits from the cool micro-climate of the area, as well as the natural stress created by the  severity of the terrain. It consistently produces powerful, concentrated Pinot noir wines in the New World-style. The Petaluma Gap moderates warm spells in the summer and fall, and enables the fruit to hang on the vine into late September and October for optimal ripening and balance.
