Dillon Vineyards is a small vineyard, located in the Yountville Appellation, south of the town of Yountville on the floor of the Napa Valley. This unique location has an exceptionally delicate micro climate for growing Chardonnay grapes.
During the growing season, the vineyard is cooled by the gentle breezes coming off the San Pablo Bay which gives this area a cooler temperature and higher humidity than other parts of the Napa Valley. The cooler temperature allows for an extended growing season and optimizes the Chardonnay's varietal character.
The soil under the vineyard is a rich alluvial soil with the elements necessary to maintain the vines with balanced growth.
The perfectly balanced fruit and acid structure of these Chardonnay grapes gives Dillon Vineyards the ability to ferment its grapes in the two classic vinification techniques: stainless steel and oak barrel fermentation.
