Mariah Vineyard is located in a truly unique location - on the Mendocino Ridge. The appellation is nicknamed “Island in the Sky”, as coastal mountains peak up just like islands when fog fills up the valley. The vineyard was planted in the 1970's and is still owned by the same owner – Dan Dooling. It is over 2600 ft in elevation and dry-farmed. The vines are planted in a combination of Hugo and Josephine loams over a well drained sandstone fractured shale subsoil. Whole-clusters are pressed into stainless steel, then native yeast fermentation for 21 days. The wine was aged on the lees for 3 months after fermentation was completed and bottled in January 2018.
