Named after the native Su’skol people who used the site as a meeting
place valued for nearby sources of fish and game. The location of the
Su’skol Vineyard located in Southern Napa near the San Pablo Bay,
takes advantage of the marine influence and the sandy clay and
sandstone soils, making our the 175-acre vineyard an ideal location for
growing Chardonnay. Planted exclusively to Chardonnay with nine
unique clones, yielding small berries with intense apple, pear and
citrus with crisp, vibrant acidity gives our winemakers flexibility to
adding layers of complex flavors to the wine.
We ferment only a small portion in new French Oak, and allow just a
portion to undergo secondary fermentation, showcasing the fruit and
a round,rich mouthfeel from bâttonage over several weeks.
