C² (C Squared) Winery is located along Bennett Valley Road in one of the smallest and most recently designated Sonoma county wine producing appellations, Bennett Valley. It is nestled between three mountains and the soil is a mixture of volcanic ash and hillside rocks and boulders. The cool climate is influenced by the nearby Crane Canyon/Grange road wind gap which exerts some ocean influence. Bennett Valley includes only 650 +/- acres of planted grapes and is one of the most peaceful and unspoiled areas of all the wine producing regions of northern California.
Our vineyard, Bennett Valley Road Vineyard, consists of 3 acres of Merlot vines and a small block of cabernet used for blending. Our rocky hillside along with hot days and cool nights creates intense fruit flavors in our well balanced, dark colored and highly structured wine. The wine is aged for approximately 18 months in oak barrels, 25%-30% of which are new French oak.
Our wine is currently available at Lazzini’s in Santa Rosa , via our online store, and at a few selected stores and restaurants in New Orleans. See more places to buy.
