It took 20 years of searching to discover this magical property for Knights Bridge Vineyards -- a stone's throw from the fabled Peter Michael vineyards and just north-west of Chateau Montelena. Bridging the counties of Sonoma and Napa, Knights Bridge Vineyards are located on the southern boundary of the stunning Knights Valley AVA of Sonoma County. Rising from 300 to 900 ft in elevation on the rocky slopes of the Mayacamas mountain range north of Calistoga, Knights Bridge Vineyards overlook a spectacular display of rolling hills, steep mountains and gentle valleys. Cool wind from the Pacific blows through the gap in these mountains, providing the grapes with longer hang time to develop richer flavors.
Blessed with a combination of iron-rich and white-ash tufa (calcium carbonate) soils, the terroir of Knights Bridge, combining the perfect blend of climate and location, provides an ideal environment for the 15 year-old chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc vines to thrive. Taking a sustainable approach, these carefully farmed hillsides share open space with wildlife habitats and riparian corridors, helping preserve nature’s delicate balance.
