Warner Henry Vineyard
The Warner Henry Vineyard was planted in 2021, and was named after Will’s late father, the wine-industry legend who founded The Henry Wine Group in the 1980’s. This five-acre, hilltop vineyard site lies directly between Presqu’ile Vineyard and Lumen’s Wild King Vineyard. The soils are deep sand, consisting of both the Marina Formation and Arnold Formation. The climate is very cool, with cold, foggy mornings and windy afternoons. The farming is organic.
The vineyard was planted almost entirely to Pinot Noir, consisting of the following clones: 667, 115, Mt Eden, 23 and 828. More than half of the vineyard is own-rooted. In 2022, Will planted about an acre of Ruché, after a visit from old friend Randall Grahm, who suggested the future success of the varietal. Randall told Will, “Ruché tastes as though Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo had sex,” and a few months later, the vines went into the ground.
