Lingenfelder Vineyard

Mark Lingenfelder has been Director of Vineyard Operations at Chalk Hill for over three decades, and this small west facing vineyard is his personal project on his own home ranch on Woolsey Road, near the famed Olivet Road district. Only 1 acre is planted to Zinfandel in the cool Russian River Valley, where he works to preserve soil and the environment.
