Appellation

Appellation Fort Ross-Seaview, Sonoma Coast

On a sun-filled cornice in the heart of California's ‘True’ Sonoma Coast, Boars’ View sits 45 minutes northwest of the township of Cazadero. Temperate maritime conditions loft over the ridgelines, blanketing the vineyard from winter’s chill and and offering natural cooling from summer’s heat. We pride ourselves on being one of very few vineyards in this remarkable area and are honored to be among the like-minded Seaview appellation wine producers who are committed to producing Pinot Noirs of the highest distinction and excellence.

Plantable vineyard land is few and far between in this remote area. The optimal vineyard sites are located along the top of the mountainous terrain that spans through the Seaview appellation. Many of the public roads that weave throughout the mountains only service the lower areas, and in order to access the plantable vineyard site atop the mountain, you must build your own road and make sure to have four wheel drive. Needless to say, getting the necessary equipment to the vineyard site is a difficult and expensive proposition. All effort considered, we knew that once planted our hard work would pay tremendous dividends as we knew little could rival the idyllic location and climate of Boars’ View.

Looking back at the early challenges, we are overjoyed about the outcome and could not be more excited about what the Boars’ View Estate has produced to date and the limitless potential for the path ahead.
