Medina Vineyard is located in the Green Valley Appellation of the Russian River Valley. Planted in 1969, it rests on a gentle, rolling slope with a western exposure that offers good sunlight throughout the day. The vineyard is composed of the infamous Goldridge sandy loam soils which produce vines of moderate vigor. The coastal influence produces daytime temperatures that allow the grapes to slowly develop full ripeness while retaining perfect balance. Nickel & Nickel produces Chardonnay from a 14-acre block within the 43-acre vineyard.
