In 1998 we bought a parcel contiguous to our first purchase from a few years earlier. In 2002 it was planted with five acres of rootstock before grafting Pinot Noir clones the following year. Ehren's viticultural training in France greatly influence his farming and winemaking choices, so that our eleven acres of Estate vineyards today produce Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir that capture the essence of California's coolest regions.
Chardonnay and Syrah are especially important to us as well, with Failla now boasting eight different bottlings of Chardonnay and three of Syrah. Sourcing from such venerable Napa locations as the Hudson Vineyard in Carneros and the Haynes Vineyard in Coombsville, the Failla Chardonnay stable continues to grow. On the Sonoma side, we purchased a gorgeous plot of land on Olivet Road (adjacent to the famed Olivet Vineyard) which has produced Chardonnay for us since 2013.
