Korbel Winery (not sure about specific dates, but early- to mid-20th century) and possibly Gallo Wines.
Reportedly some of the oldest French Colombard vines in Sonoma County. Previous owners spoke of their parents (who live on property adjacent to Betty Ann Vineyard) talking with an older woman who visited the property in the 1970’s who remembered picking grapes in the vineyard just after the 1906 earthquake.
Variety is French Colombard or West’s White Prolific – 61 vines that still produce (non-commercial vineyard).
St. George rootstock, Santa Rosa Plain, no trellising – head trained and pruned, no irrigation or cover crop, unsure about soil depth, no grade.
