The Hidden Terrace Vineyard is the Fishers’ well-kept secret on a steep south-facing slope at the edge of Fisher’s Mountain Estate, high above the Sonoma Valley. Farmed entirely by hand due to the severe incline, this small vineyard is composed of rare tufa (volcanic chalk) soil. And that certainly comes through in the briary, ashy profile of this wine, along with high-toned huckleberries and plums. Gorgeous stuff!
The Fisher family has the sort of vineyards that will cause a winemaker’s pulse to quicken – a vitally important advantage in a game where the conversation starts (and ends) with raw materials. From their gorgeous estate property on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas range, to their Lamb vineyard in Calistoga, they have some magical land at their disposal. Winemaker Whitney Fisher and her team are farming these plots to exacting standards, and the results are some of the best wines in the Valley! You owe it to yourself to mix up a case of these fabulous wines.
