Grown by Roger King in the Suisun Valley. The vineyard is situated on the eastern slope of the valley and its soil is deep clay loam. The King-Andrews white wine is a Heritage Revival project started in 2010 by Matthew Rorick, when he procured cuttings from an abandoned Trousseau Gris vineyard in Calistoga. Roger King raised four vines from these cuttings, and the inspiration to re-create a pre-prohibition white field blend was born. Since then, the planting has been expanded to include Chenin Blanc, Vermentino and Green Hungarian.
