Focus on Farming

The Petaluma Gap is a grower-focused region with a rich legacy of agricultural families dating back several generations. Our vineyards have been shaped by this agricultural context and are often nestled in with cattle, sheep, chickens and fruit trees. Petaluma Gap grape growers are stewards of the land and are dedicated to farming sustainably, with many growers devoted to organic or biodynamic viticulture practices.

With the Petaluma Gap’s unique geography and climate, these determined growers face constant challenges. Every growing season their vines are engulfed by heavy morning fog, battered by afternoon wind, and threatened by fall rain as the grapes slowly ripen. They put their heart and soul into this challenging farming. Why do they do it? Open a bottle of Petaluma Gap wine to find out.
