Vineyard
Lolita Vineyard, Russian River Valley
About The Vineyard

Dot Wine was born from this vineyard. It all started with Lolita. Pam and Lee Martinelli Jr., farm this exceptional hillside site with a southeastern exposure. It’s a cool site with the perfect long and slow ripening period. Located in the Forestville sub-AVA of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, Lolita is uniquely situated on Goldridge Sandy Clay loam which is the “punk rock folk song hero” of soils for Pinot Noir. Pam and Lee Jr. offered up a small block from this precious vineyard that produces about 1 ton annually of Clone 777 on 420A rootstock. She picks early and makes a high integrity, minimal intervention wine that maintains natural acidity.


Winemaker Notes

The 2018 vintage was as large as it was beautiful, with a plentiful crop matching big, expressive wines from the Russian River Valley.


This wine was aged in 40% new French Oak barrels.
