The name Marine Layer pays homage to the thick blanket of fog that pours in from the Pacific Ocean most summer mornings through the Petaluma Gap in the Sonoma Coast. The story of Marine Layer begins with our intimate knowledge of the best vineyard sites for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in California. Organic farming, heritage clones, hand-harvesting, and an obsession for quality guide our path. Every bottling of Marine Layer is produced in tiny quantities, some as small as four barrels. We use native yeast in our winemaking, minimal intervention, barrel-fermentation for our whites, and extended barrel aging for our reds. We’ve spared no expense to make wines that will compete with the very best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in the world.
