From Bedrock Wine Co. website:

“Planted in 1905, Sodini Vineyard is located along Limerick Lane in the far eastern reaches of Russian River Valley. Dry-farmed and low-cropping, the resulting wines tend to be a hybrid of the opulence found in Dry Creek with the bright acids and freshness of Russian River Valley—aka, delicious. The vineyard was used by Chris Bilbro at Marietta Cellars in 1978 and continued to go to the winery until 2012, when we started taking the fruit. In addition, Rochioli vineyard designated fruit from the hillside block in the 1990s.

Just as the vineyard character is a hybrid of Dry Creek weight and Russian River flash and perfume, the soils are a similar reflection of the two areas. The flat section of the vineyard features sandy-clay loam soils very typical of the Russian River Valley plain while the hillside features red clay loam soils more similar to those found at Teldeschi Ranch on the Dry Creek Bench. In addition to this the soils are chalk flecked, a reminder that Chalk Hill is also in close proximity.”
