Wayfarer Vineyard is extraordinary and unforgiving – undulating slopes hidden among winding mountain roads and redwoods, swathing a ridge at 1,100 feet on the Sonoma Coast, less than five miles from the Pacific. This remote landscape is the provenance of wines born of risk, rigor and mastery – estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. Jayson Pahlmeyer purchased the land in 1998 after being introduced to it by winemaker Helen Turley. Renowned vineyard developer David Abreu designed the vineyard as 30 one-acre blocks, each dedicated to an individual clone. With 15 clones, three rootstocks, east- and west-facing slopes, tight vine spacing, and Goldridge soil throughout, the vineyard is farmed meticulously vine-by-vine. After nurturing the vineyard through its adolescence, Cleo Pahlmeyer, Jayson’s daughter, introduced the first Wayfarer Vineyard wines in 2012. It is an endeavor of true passion, pushing the exactitude of winegrowing and winemaking to the farthest limits.
