Terroir

Terroir gives wine its sense of place. Technically about the unique qualities of the land, terroir more broadly means all of the natural elements of the growing environment – the soil, climate, topography, geography – as well as the history and romantic intangibles of a vineyard.

Jungle Love Vineyard’s location in the Oak Knoll District gives us a long growing season in the sweet spot between cool Carneros and the intense heat up valley. Our sometimes-foggy mornings give way to bright sunny days and bright, big flavors in our wines. The well-drained soil is warm and rich: an ancient alluvial fan that is gravelly in places, but mostly loamy clay.
