Featuring elegant and restrained Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from respected vineyards solely from the Sonoma Coast, LaRue Wines thrives today as an ultra-premium, 500-case brand that is tended to with precision and care. The Sonoma Coast offers the perfect canvas for crafting the style of wines that winemaker Katy Wilson has always gravitated towards: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is complex and vibrant with elegant acidity; wines that drink well when young, but also age gracefully; wines that effortlessly showcase their site and vintage conditions. There are just two releases per year exclusively to our wine club and mail list members in the Spring & the Fall.

Chardonnay<br />Charles Heintz Vineyard

Chardonnay
Charles Heintz Vineyard

Located at about 800 feet elevation on Goldridge sandy loam soils and with the cool ocean influence, the Heintz Vineyard’s fruit is a quintessential expression of the Sonoma Coast—great acid backbone with a rich palate and a touch of minerality.

LEMON CURD // APRICOT // APPLE BLOSSOM // FLINT // VIBRANT ACIDITY

Chardonnay<br />H. Klopp Vineyard

Chardonnay
H. Klopp Vineyard

In 2014, Katy Wilson teamed up with Ted Klopp and Lauren Klopp Williams (also of Thorn Ridge Vineyard) in the planting on this coastal vineyard. The combination of the Goldridge sandy loam soils and coastal climate lend to wines with great complexity of minerality and high levels of acidity.

Meyer Lemon // Bosc Pear // Lime Zest // Honeysuckle // Crème Brûlée

Pinot Noir<br />Emmaline Ann Vineyard

Pinot Noir
Emmaline Ann Vineyard

Eight miles from the coast, the Emmaline Ann Vineyard is a three-acre vineyard near the town of Freestone. The vineyard’s proximity to the ocean, as well as higher elevation at 800 feet, both contribute to the elegant quality and balanced characteristics of both earth and fruit that are definitive of this vineyard.

Spiced Cranberry // Fresh Strawberry // Violets // Forest Floor // Leather

Pinot Noir<br />Rice-Spivak Vineyard

Pinot Noir
Rice-Spivak Vineyard

Rice-Spivak Vineyard is a six-acre vineyard south of the town of Sebastopol. The soils on this vineyard are Goldridge sandy loam along with volcanic ash. This distinctive soil profile along with the clonal selections of Dijon and Swan create a wine that is balanced with good acidity, fresh aromas, and unmistakable minerality.

Cherry Compote // Muddled Strawberry // Spiced Plum // Clove // Black Tea

Pinot Noir<br />Thorn Ridge Vineyard

Pinot Noir
Thorn Ridge Vineyard

This steep eastern-facing sloped vineyard is planted on Goldridge sandy loam soils. Thorn Ridge is located just west of the town of Sebastopol where a heavy marine influence gives notes of dark fruit integrated with spicy undertones to the wine.

DARK CHERRY // BLACKBERRY // SAVORY PLUM // THYME // CRUSHED RED FLOWERS
