Ferrington Vineyard

Anderson Valley
Mendocino County

Ferrington is one of the most easterly vineyards in the Anderson Valley, in the warmer part of the valley, farthest from the coast. The vineyard was originally planted in 1969, then purchased in the 1980’s by Dr. Ferrington, a Dermatologist from Santa Rosa. Kurt Schoeneman purchased the vineyard in 1996 and has maintained it since, replanting much of the vineyard and bringing it to premier status. Today, the total vineyard is about 74 acres, with five clones of Pinot Noir planted on about 25 of those acres. The rest is planted to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Riesling.
