Known for producing a deep, aromatically-charged wine that showcases the high altitude and cold climate of its site.
Since its founding in 2010, Champ de Rêves has become one of the premier producers of high altitude Pinot Noir in the Anderson Valley — a remote, mountainous, cold-climate AVA in Mendocino County.
The centerpiece of Champ de Rêves is the 85-acre estate vineyard. Located just 18 miles from the jagged, weather-beaten Pacific coastline, this beautiful property climbs from 1,400 to 2,000 feet and features a myriad of aspects, soils, exposures and mesoclimates.
To take full advantage of the site’s complex topography, the Boone Ridge Vineyard is divided into a patchwork of small blocks planted to seven different clones of Pinot Noir. Decomposed sandstone provides superb drainage and mineral uptake while naturally restricting vine vigor and yields.
