Ed Durell planted the first vines in these rock-strewn, windy hills in 1979. Today, the vineyard spans three AVAs: Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. The block TOR sources from lies in the famed Sand Hill section of the vineyard, which overlooks the Sonoma Valley. They favor the heritage Wente clone in this vineyard, which is a selection of plant material that sets a small crop with small berries. The 2018 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay exhibits "rich heavy cream, wet hay/grass and magnolia blossoms aromatically. The palate is completely seamless with medium to full weight, Meyer lemon, intently young early press EVOO and a seemingly endless finish." - Jeff Ames, winemaker. 130 cases were produced.
