The famed Manchester Ridge Vineyard lies "in the sky" of Mendocino Ridge AVA, a non-contiguous appellation celebrating high elevation plantings near the coast. Here, the coastal sun ripens these Pinot Noir vines slowly and fully while the ocean breezes keep the nights cool and allow for impeccably balanced finished wines.
