Rockpile Vineyard

“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupery The Rockpile Vineyard, at the very far end of Rockpile Road, is approximately 2000 feet above Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley. Planted with 28 acres of vines (red Bordeaux varieties and Syrah/Petite Sirah) by Rod and Cathy Park, it is 100% sustainably farmed, and solar power is used for their farming operations and dwellings. This beautiful mountaintop vineyard produces Petite Sirah & Cabernet Sauvignon of elegance & complexity.
