Tournesol vineyards are located in the Coombsville AVA. The 12 acres lie on a gently sloping bench 300 feet above the valley floor. Tournesol vines enjoy a perfect exposure to the sun with cool breezes from San Pablo Bay providing ideal growing temperatures. The volcanic composition of this soil produces muscular Bordeaux varietal wines that express its distinctive terroir.
