Weir

The Weir Vineyard is the pride and joy of Bill and Suki Weir. They’ve been working for nearly two decades to create a premier Pinot Noir vineyard in the Yorkville Highlands. The Weir’s vineyard sits at about 900’ and is often just below the marine fog layer that moves up the Anderson Valley toward Yorkville from the Pacific. Warm days, cool nights and foggy mornings produce a relatively late-ripening pinot noir, full of depth and character.

Bill has experimented with different growing techniques, maintaining low crop yields and stressing the vines by limiting water to create greater flavor intensity. The Weirs specialize in Pinot Noir and have several clones, including one thought to be Domaine Romanee-Conti, Wadenswil 2-A, UC Davis Pomard 4, and a special select clone taken from a well-known vineyard bordering the Russian River in Sonoma County. The Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir is marked by a unique terroir – melange soils, Mediterranean climate with long dry summers and renewing fog, south-facing slopes, and neighboring oak trees, which combine to yield exquisite fruit of multi-layered complexity.
