The estate lies in the Bennett Valley, located south of the city of Santa Rosa, on high ground between the Sonoma Valley and Cotati Valley. Although Bennett Valley is among Sonoma County’s more recently recognized American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), the grapevine got an early start here. The AVA begins where the city’s suburban neighborhood known as Bennett Valley gives way to rolling oak woodland and horse pastures bordered by ancient stone walls. In 1862, Santa Rosa winemaker Isaac DeTurk planted a vineyard on land he purchased from valley namesake James Bennett. DeTurk called his winery, the valley’s first, Belle Mount. However, the combination of phylloxera and Prohibition cleared the valley of vineyards. It wasn’t until the late 1970s that vineyards returned to Bennett Valley in a meaningful way at the pioneering (& neighboring) Matanzas Creek Winery. Enjoy the amazing outdoor activities Sonoma County has to offer at nearby Bennett Valley Golf Course & Galvin Park that offer tennis courts, a dog park and various other sporting fields.
