All Friends & Family orders will be shipped on August 8 or available for pick up at the winery on August 9 or 11. Given the summer heat and the delicate nature of these older vintage wines, we recommend you add a 6 or 12 bottle coolpack to your cart (depending on your order) before checkout. Adult signature required for delivery and highly recommended on the first delivery to reduce exposure to summer heat. A business address is recommended.
Considered a quintessential Carneros AVA vineyard site, Lee Vineyard was planted in 1967 by Ira and Shirley Lee. Saintsbury’s relationship with the Lee family formed in 1982 and that relationship was instrumental to the replanting of the vineyard, which took place in the 1990s and early 2000s with Dijon, Pommard and Swan clones.
Terroir: Haire clay loam soil; exposure to Petaluma wind gap and San Pablo Bay airstreams, creating temperate growing conditions.
