Jackson and Seillan selected California’s Sonoma County as the ideal location for Vérité’s vineyards. Our vineyards are located in the Bennett Valley, Alexander Valley, Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations.
Sonoma County is one of the most diverse winegrowing regions on earth. Due to the influence of the Pacific Ocean, the climate flows from west to east, rather than from north to south. The eastern inland appellations are warm, dry, and ideal for Bordeaux varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The microclimates in each appellation are warm enough to fully ripen red Bordeaux varieties, but cool enough to retain the natural acidity needed to make timeless, age-worthy wines.
