Marimar Estate
Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir Dona Margarita Vineyard Sonoma Coast

Named after the late matriarch of the Torres family, this organic vineyard is located on Bohemian Highway, between Freestone and Occidental, in the Sonoma Coast appellation of origin. We have named this bottling Mas Cavalls after the Catalan name for Horse Farm, since our equestrian center lies right below the vineyard. Only six miles from the Pacific Ocean, the cool breezes and drifting fog make it an ideal site for Pinot Noir.

Planted in the European style of super-high density, with 2,340 vines per acre, the yields are low and labor is intensive; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration, as well as more elegance and finesse.
