From the Seppa family:

The Seppa farm has been in the family since 1902. In 2001 Don Seppa planted his first Pinot Noir grapes on two separate slopes of land.

Located in Penngrove, Sonoma County, Seppa Vineyard sits in the Petaluma Gap in a valley that is under- lain by unconsolidated marine and continental sediments and volcanic rocks of Tertiary and Quaternary age. The diurnal temperatures can range up to 40+ degrees, and the valley experiences a coastal fog layer that lends itself to a final wine with added complexity and acidity.
