The Terroir

We farm less than 20 acres of vines, all mere miles from the cool Pacific Ocean in the remote and rugged westerly Sonoma Coast where the cooling coastal influence, morning fog, and unique soils create an ideal climate for elegant, expressive wines. These monopole sites are what we consider to be California grand cru sites, planted to pinot noir and chardonnay. 

We are dedicated to farming these sites with the utmost respect for nature, caring for the soil, vine and human health, as well as our planet’s. We implement permaculture, regenerative, and organic practices, which allows us to care for – and capture - the flora, fauna and vibrant biodiversity found in these special sites. 

After 100 years of winegrowing in California, we want to ensure we can continue doingwhat we love – farming on these beautiful, golden hillsides - for the next 100.

Freestone Occidental

Considered RAEN’s home estate, this site overlooks the Bodega Bay and is surrounded by redwoods, wildflowers, coastal oaks, and native grasses. Bursting with fragrant crimson clover and yellow grass in the winter and spring months, summer brings the Pacific fog that engulfs the vineyard in the early mornings, covering the fruit with a cool ocean mist. The fog recedes back in the late mornings, drenching the vines in afternoon sunlight and warmth ripening our fruit, allowing for wines of incredible balance and depth. 

This site, certified organic since 2022, acts as a wildlife rescue release site where a bobcat and family of foxes have made their home.

Two smaller, 0.9-acre lower blocks make up our single vineyard Bodega bottling, and the upper block becomes the backbone to our Royal St. Robert bottling.

Fort Ross-Seaview

Our Fort Ross-Seaview wines grow in one of the most rugged reaches of the westerly Sonoma Coast, on a coastal ridge north of Jenner overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The proximity to the cool coast creates an environment where our grapes struggle to mature within the growing season. Vines sit just above the fog line, allowing for the sun’s late summer warmth to slowly achieve ripeness.
