Soil Type: Manzanita soil. Very old, cobbly, volcanic, red clay loam.
Climate: High bench above the fog line, but straddles the Alexander Valley and the Russian River Valley, so has cooling breezes late afternoon.
Elevation: About 500 feet
Exposure: On a knoll, so gently sloping to the west with some Southern and Northern exposure
