PRODUCER

Repris

Repris is in the Mayacamas Mountains above the city of Sonoma. It has been the site of vineyards and winemaking since the 19th century, and in the late 20th century was at various times owned by international corporations. But its new life as a small-batch producer of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Bordeaux-style blends started in 2011, when businessmen Christian Borcher and Jim Momtazee acquired the historic Moon Mountain Vineyard and winery. The winemaker Erich Bradley, and Repris expects to keep production to no more than 10,000 cases a year. Wines are generally available only through the winery and its mailing list.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma County, Moon Mountain

Moon Mountain AVA earned its official status as an American Viticultural Area in 2013. The Moon Mountain district is a sub-appellation of Sonoma Valley, and has long been considered a prestigious address for vineyards. At the relatively high level of 400 to 2.700 feet above sea level, the 17,633-acre AVA is on the western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains. About 2,000 acres within the AVA are planted to vineyards. The climate benefits from constant breezes from the bay as well as sunshine, since the area is above the fog line. Grapes grown in the AVA are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, with some Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
