2018 Pinot Noir
Blue Farm takes its name from the farmhouse at Anne Moller-Racke’s home and vineyard in Carneros. In 2001, Anne planted seven acres of Pinot Noir divided into three blocks dedicated to the Swan clone and three Dijon clones. In 2008, Anne grafted one of her favorite clones from the Donum vineyard onto the 777 portion of her vineyard with the goal to make the first single clone bottling, Farmhouse. In 2017 she grafted over another block of 777 to Calera to make Riverbed, with 2018 being the inaugural bottling. The philosophy: site determines quality; clone offers personality.
