State Lane Vineyard
Our renowned State Lane Vineyard features a unique diversity of soils, the result of a century’s old alluvial fan which is comprised of gravel, clay loam and ancient costal deposits. This soil composition is idyllic for the varietals we have planted here.
Located between the warmer up-valley climate and the cooling maritime influence of the San Francisco Bay to the south, our State Lane Vineyard traditionally sees an extended growing season ensuring wines that offer finesse and balance connected by vibrant, energetic tannins.
Goosecross sources grapes from some of the most prestigious and exciting locations in Napa Valley; from the sloping vineyards of Howell Mountain, to the shores of San Pablo Bay in Carneros. These sites are hand selected based on their discerning and unique characteristics. After harvest, the fruit is perfected in the cellar into beautifully complex balanced wines by our legendary winemaker Bill Nancarrow.
