Casa Verde

CCasa Verde is a magical vineyard lying on the same bench as Niemi in Redwood Valley, though the alluvial soil here is Yokayo Series. Peter Chevalier farms these 70 year old, head pruned, dry farmed vines traditionally with cross cultivation. Amongst the ten acres of field blended red grapes lie 230 French Colombard vines, planted intermittently. The red grapes are a mix of Carignane, Grenache, and an as yet unidentified variety.
