Moonlike outcroppings erupt from deep purple soils, the signs of the massive volcanoes that formed the Mayacamas Mountains are everywhere at this site. Even the soils, predominately fractured basalt and ash, can give the place a particularly lunar feel, hence The Moon Mountain District name. The elevation keeps these vineyards out of all but the thickest summer fog, so days are long and warm while the nights are cool and dry. The coastal influence and constant cooling winds allow grapes to ripen slowly, creating deep extracted flavors.
