Marimar Estate makes about 7,500 cases of wine a year. Founder Marimar Torres owns vineyards in the Green Valley and Sonoma Coast AVAs. The winery and 60 acre Don Miguel Vineyard is located in the Western Green Valley section of the Russian River Valley. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are organically grown on this property. Soils are well drained and made of marine sediment with volcanic influence. Vineyard rows are densely planted with vertical trellises.
The estate is only about 10 miles west of the Pacific Ocean. Regular exposure to wind and fog gives their Chardonnays a crisp, refreshing flavor profile. The climate is a cool Region I on the UC Davis heat summation scale.
The Dona Marimar Vineyard is located in the Sonoma Coast AVA. About 12 acres of Pinot Noir are currently planted on the 180 acre property. The soils in this vineyard are mainly made of loam and sand. Salmon Creek drains into the Pacific Ocean and is the major watershed nearby.
