Thorn Ridge Vineyard
Thorn Ridge vineyard is owned and farmed by legendary Sonoma grower Tedd Klopp and located southwest of the town Sebastopol within the Russian River AVA. The vineyard is located 7 miles from the ocean. The site is a magnet for cold Pacific air and fog. The vineyard is planted on rare silty, Goldridge sandy loam soils formed by the decomposition of an ancient sandstone seabed. The soil is the most sought-after type in Sonoma County – especially for Pinot Noir, because of its excellent drainage and low fertility.
