     Mariola Ridge is a ridge top planting spanning South, East and West hillsides, with slopes between 10°- 40° degrees. The vineyard benefits from Gold Ridge soils, a windy, cool climate and strong sustainable farming practices. 

     The property was purchased by the Trohan family in the Spring of 2010, launching their dream of vineyard ownership. In 2017, the property was permitted, cleared and planted to 8.5 acres of grapes.
