Failla Wines began in 1998, born of the opportunity to make expressive wines from single vineyard locations across California’s western Sonoma Coast. Keefer Ranch Vineyard was planted in 1988 by Marcy Keefer and her husband Robert. Eleven years later, a handshake deal with Failla would cement our first vineyard-designate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and forever entwine our histories. The site lies in the southwestern-most part of the Green Valley of Russian River Valley, an area noted for its intense morning fog and sandy Goldridge soils. This combination makes Keefer Ranch a site that provides balanced water, nutrition, and sunlight; all important factors in delivering high-quality, personality-driven fruit.
