Winemaker's Notes:

The Lorenzo Vineyard is thirty-three year old vineyard that occupies a unique site just west of the city of Santa Rosa and less than 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Cool climate and clayey soil make for an especially late bud break in spring and a long hang time for the fruit to reach maturity.

This rich, complex wine pairs well with a range of cuisines and helps to turn any meal into a memorable occasion. Some our favorite pairings include sea scallops and halibut, as well as cream sauced dishes.

About Landmark Vineyards:

Landmark Vineyards was founded in 1974 in Windsor, California. In 1989, Damaris Deere Ford, became sole proprietor and relocated the winery to Sonoma Valley. Ford is a descendant of John Deere, founder of the world's largest tractor manufacturer. Landmark Vineyards is located at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in Sonoma Valley. In 1993, world-renowned consulting enologist Helen Turley was hired to work with former winemaker, Eric Stern. Landmark Vineyard's mission is "to make great wines that enhance the joy of life." Quality and flavor begin in the vineyards. In addition to the estate vineyard, Landmark sources grapes from a range of different vineyards and those selected are the finest in the highly diverse microclimates of Sonoma County's winegrowing regions.
