Black Knight Vineyard
About The Vineyard
The vineyard sits 9 miles South and East of Santa Rosa at 800ft – 900 ft elevation. Mitch and his family farm Black Knight row by row. There are half a dozen micro climates on the 100 acre property, and each requires special care and attention. Mitch puts his heart and soul into the property and knows each stone and vine. Vineyards and wine start with the people who tend the land. No more true than for BKV.
Sunny on one part of the vineyard, cloudy on another. White volcanic ash under the Pommard clone, gravely loam for the chard, and volcanic rock for the Dragon’s Back. BKV is perhaps the most diverse vineyard in all of Sonoma. The Pinots are delicate and floral and the Chardonnays race with acidity and minerality.
“A very complex Chardonnay. Tropical notes of pineapple and starfruit, with baked green apple. The 50% malolactic and 50% new French oak offers kettle corn and caramel apple on the nose, yet doesn’t hide the freshness of the tropical and floral notes. The finish has green apple and a sense of minerality – followed by a long mouthwatering finish.” – Winemaker Kevin Bersofsky
