Located in the heart of Sonoma County’s wine region, the DeVoto farm is nestled in the Green Valley viticultural area of the Russian River Valley appellation, a microclimate perfect for Pinot Noir. In 2006 we planted our first vines and today we have 7 acres of pinot noir vineyards flourishing alongside our heirloom apples and specialty flowers. (828 planted in 2006, 667 planted in 2007, 115 planted in 2008).
Devoto Gardens is a 20 acre diversified family farm that was founded in 1976 by Susan and Stan Devoto. The farm started out as one of the North Bay’s original micro-green growers, and slowly evolved in biodiversity. Together with their three daughters, the family grows over 50 varieties of heirloom apples, specialty cut flowers, and pinot noir grapes.
They draw their inspiration from a true passion for slow food, sustainability, beauty, and the preservation of heirloom varieties such as the local Gravenstein apple.
