Blue Farm began as a seven-acre vineyard divided into four blocks to create one complete wine. Today, it includes Grand Cru style Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from five vineyards and five AVAs within Sonoma County. Our focus has always been on farming and therefore cultivating a deep connection with the land.

The vintage of a wine is a story in a bottle; the story of the growing season from bud break to harvest, with the last 30 days before harvest being the most meaningful. However, the weather during flowering has a larger effect on quantity and is often the first indicator for quality. Every year we try to capture the voice of the vintage. Knowing our sites well, we use our tools wisely, from crop thinning to irrigation, to bring out intensity and grace.
2016 Pinot Noir, King Ridge, Fort Ross-Seaview
A baked bread tone leads to a bouquet of densely packed strawberry and blueberry in this wine. The palate is driven by a tangy citrus flavor and accentuated by a lingering layer of Asian spice on the finish.Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
2016 Chardonnay, Laceroni, Russian River Valley
From a vineyard near the tiny town of Graton, this wine offers intense acidity nipping at strong layers of lemon and wet stone. The balanced palate offers weight, with a spicy finish that shows potential for aging.Jeb Dunnuck
We created our Guaranteed Allocation Program to ensure complete access of our wines to a small group of wine lovers. Choosing to work with low-yielding, high quality vineyards limits our case production, resulting in an average of 250 cases or less of each wine. This provides us with the unique opportunity to make interesting and age-worthy Sonoma Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay to share.
