The Rorick Vineyard is located just outside of the town of Murphys in the Sierra Foothills. The first vines were planted by Barden Stevenot in 1976 and expanded to its current 75 acres in 2000; Matthew Rorick took over the vineyard in 2013 and converted the farming to organic practices. At an elevation of 2000′, it is situated on limestone soils beneath a top layer of schist. The alpine growing season combined with limestone soils leave an indelible mark on the wines grown at RHV: beautiful aromatics, textural presence, and bright natural acidity are all hallmarks of the site.
