Located at 900’ elevation overlooking nearby Bennett Valley, on the northwestern flank of Sonoma Mountain, Silver Pines vineyard is well situated to yield pinot noir clone 115 of uncommon complexity. Planted in 2000 by owners Norm and Carole Silverman, the vineyard has a cooler microclimate dominated by infusions of morning fog, followed by warm afternoons tempered with brisk afternoon breezes as the fog courses back in through the Petaluma Gap by nightfall.

The loamy-clay soil on this site is particularly low in vigor, naturally limiting yields to about 2 tons per acre. Bailiwick takes only the 115 clone from this vineyard, from a block that faces due south, providing the perfect orientation for even ripening in this cool location. The care that Norm and Carole lavish on this vineyard consistently results in showcase fruit.
