This old-vine vineyard is planted along Hooker Creek, north of the town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley. The section of the vineyard we receive fruit from was planted in 1888 on a part of the Agua Caliente Spanish Land grant purchased from General Vallejo by Joseph Hooker and William Sherman in 1854.
