Searby Vineyard is located in the exceptionally cool Green Valley sub-AVA of the Russian River Valley and contains some of the oldest Chardonnay vines in Sonoma County, still bearing plentiful fruit, exclusively for The Calling. Planted in 1972 on a gentle west-facing slope, this ten-acre vineyard is known for its dry-farmed, sandy loam soils and the cool maritime influence of the Pacific. The older vines are head-trained, meaning they grow without trellising and undergo minimal pruning by vineyard manager and Sonoma legend Charlie Heintz. This enables winemaker James MacPhail to craft a luscious, concentrated Chardonnay that embodies the heritage and painstaking attention to detail in one of Sonoma's oldest plantings.
