Pratt Vineyard,
Sexton Road

Sonoma Coast

Jim Pratt began developing this vineyard in the late 1990s, on a site south of Graton and West of Sebastopol on the far western portions of the Sonoma Coast in an area known as Laguna Hills and more recently, the Sebastopol Hills.  Ridges are mostly northeast to southwest oriented, falling within the main watershed for Atascadero Creek, which flows north into Green Valley creek and on into the Russian River.  The slightly sloping hillside receives the classic morning fog and warm afternoons common to the coastal region, producing fruit with great acidity.
