Exposed to the rigors of the foggy Sonoma coastline, this sixth-generation family-owned ranch resides on a bluff above Bodega, a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. This marginal site on the edge of the Sonoma Coast, Demeter certified Biodynamic® and farmed by the Benzigers, is characterized by consistently low yields and extended hang times. May of 2015 was unseasonably cool, ultimately impacting flowering & fruit set, and an overall reduction in yields. Only four barrels of the exotic 2015 Terra Neuma were produced.
