In March of 1905 Pasquale and Luigi Bastoni arrived in Santa Rosa from northern Italy and purchased their first plot of soil in the United States in a widow’s sale—160 acres (one quarter section) of land in the northeast section of Santa Rosa. Some of the property was immediately planted with grapevines and fruit trees. The ranch eventually went to Pasquale’s only son, Pasquale Jr., and over time dwindled to 30 acres. Zinfandel on St. George vines in the traditional head trained 8X8 spacing were planted on the hillsides. It was a field blend including Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Palomino. Three generations later, Martha Bastoni Messana and her husband Russ replanted these gracious hills with Zinfandel (DuPratt on St. George rootstock) and Alicante Bouschet. What is now known as Bastoni Vineyards is located on Riebli Road in Santa Rosa. The road narrows, and the turns sharpen right between the old barns. The house sits in the valley, the bread oven is seen to the left, the old rock house is on the right. It looks like you’re driving through a piece of history—the dairy barn, pig pens, and tractor sheds are all still being used. Our farming practice on current new vines planted allows for 2 to 2.5 tons per acre on VSP trained vines. We are Fish Friendly Farming certified and have been since 2002. In 2011 we replanted another 5 acres to St. Peter‘s Church Zinfandel on St. George, along with just a touch of Petite Sirah plants for blending.

Kick Ranch shares a history of farming and ranching that was begun by the pioneer Fulkerson family in 1854. In 2000, Dick Keenan and his wife, Kathy McNamara, planted a vineyard on part of the land first settled by those pioneers, which they named Kick Ranch.
Since Kick Ranch’s first harvest in 2003, every harvest has been sold out. For 2107, twenty wineries in Napa and Sonoma have chosen Kick Ranch as a source for their wines. See www.kickranch.com for a list of the Kick Ranch winery partners.
Beginning with the 2004 vintage, there have been 78 Kick Ranch wines that have scored at 90 points or above by one or more of the four leading wine magazines. And in 2015, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat named Kick Ranch one of Sonoma County’s “marquee vineyards” in a feature story written by Virginie Boone (who is also Wine Enthusiasts’ wine reviewer for California wines) http://tinyurl.com/pnhpv2m

Luc’s vineyard is a one acre southwest facing hillside planted on
volcanic soils located off of Mark West Springs rd, in the hills
straddling the north eastern edge of north Santa Rosa as you’re
heading towards Calistoga. There are lot of large rocks, rattlesnakes,
wild turkeys, medium rocks, mature oak trees and small rocks.The
vineyard is planted with syrah, tempranillo, grenache and graciano.
My involvement with wine started some forty years ago, and over the years yours truly has blossomed into an avid connoseur and collector. Being trained as a Chemist (Master Michigan State) and spending my entire working career in the chemical industry provided a great basis and opportunity to explore the technology, while enjoying wines.
My job brought me to California several times each year and the Napa/Sonoma area soon became the vacation spot of choice. In addition, late in my chemical industry career, the job provided several visits to Australia and a chance to spend weekends and vacation days getting to know and understand their fabulous wine industry.
As retirement time approached there was little doubt that a second career in the wine and grape business was in the offing and toward that end we purchased 78 acres of virgin land in Sonoma County.
Retirement came in 1986 and we moved directly to the new place in Sonoma. Work on the new vineyard began almost immediately. The land was almost all "hillside" and ranged in elevation from 1300 to 1800 feet. There were many rocks, steep hills and bluffs. The land was moderately forested with 3 different Oak trees, Douglas fir, Manzanita, and Bay. About 70% of the property appeared to be plantable.
The views were fantastic with Mt. St. Helena (in Napa County) to the North, Santa Rosa to the West and even San Francisco Bay to the South.

Redwood Hill Vineyard sits high above the clouds atop the Mayacamas Mountains. Carved into the steep, hillside terrain, Redwood Hill benefits from its unique combination of soil, elevation, and climate to produce complex, captivating Bordeaux style wines. Planted in 1990, the vineyard features just over six acres of Cabernet Sauvignon (4.25 acres), Cabernet Franc (1 acre) and Merlot (1 acre). The steep, well-drained hillside with shallow, rocky topsoil provides for less-vigorous vines, smaller berries and intensely flavored wines.
At over 1,400 feet, Redwood Hill sits high above the valley fog while benefitting from the cool marine airflow off the Pacific during the hot summer months. This climate allows our fruit to develop slowly and evenly, resulting in full physiological ripeness at lower alcohol levels than in warmer growing regions to our east. These key elements of Redwood Hill's terroir provide a necessary balance of fertility and stress in which our fruit, and ultimately our wines, thrive. We strive to craft wines which express the uniqueness of our site and believe that an organic and holistic approach provides the optimal path. We are proud to be 100% organically farmed.
Our estate vineyard provides the inspiration for producing honest, limited production wines. We are a very small, family-owned operation and release our wines directly to members of our mailing list.

Schaffer Vineyard, 3929 Skyfarm Drive, Santa Rosa.
Our small vineyard is planted in the very lean volcanic soil of a North facing slope at an elevation of 700 feet. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre varietals were planted in 2005 with additional Grenache and Grenache Blanc added in 2013. Our wines are produced on site in our small ROCOSO winery, named for the “rocky” soil where our vines struggle to grow. Although modest in size, our vineyard consistently produces award winning wines. Regretfully we are not a commercial winery, so we are unable to make our wines available for purchase.
