MONTAGU VINEYARDS

 

Ritchie Vineyard

With its beautiful, mature vines nestled on a rolling northwest-facing hillside in the heart of the Russian River Valley, the Ritchie Vineyard produces limited quantities of the highest quality grapes. First planted in 1972, it is amont the oldest and prized vineyards in California.

Durell Vineyard

Located in the southwestern hills of Sonoma Valley, the Durell Vineyard stretches across three separate, overlapping appellations – Sonoma Coast, Sonoma Valley and a small corner of the Carneros. This unique vineyard enjoys the best characteristics of each appellation, resulting in wines that are rich, elegant and full-bodied.

Hyde Vineyard

Hyde Vineyard is located in the heart of Carneros appellation. The soils are quite heavy and become leaner as they transit to the hillside. With a limited vine vigor and crop yield, this vineyard produces wines of weight – without being too heavy – that are supported by a strong acid profile and a steely-like sulfide character.

Bacigalupi Vineyard

In 1956, Charles and Helen Bacigalup purchased land near the town of Healdsburg. They began to care for the 16 acres of existing vineyards with the vision of meeting the demand for premium wine grapes. The vineyards now consist of 125 acres of premium grapes, which have been planted and managed for the past 30 years by the Bacigalupi family.
