Bella Luna Vineyard

On the far East side of the Russian River Valley, just on the border of the Green Valley AVA lies Bella Luna, one of our four Estate Biodynamic vineyards. Bella Luna is planted with 100% Pinot Noir vines, and with its rolling hills, surrounding pine trees and bright, clear nights, it’s no wonder that we named this special place “Bella Luna” which means “Beautiful Moon.”

Year after year, the fruit at Bella Luna Vineyard produces well-balanced Pinot Noir with bright acidity and soft tannins.

2015 Signaterra Pinot Noir, Bella Luna Vineyard

Firm, focused and engaging, with generous fruit. Bright strawberry, raspberry, and cherry easily balance Bella Luna’s minerality and spice characteristics; this is a Pinot to be reckond with. A light grip of tannins is present on the finish.
