Situated just off historic Westside Road, Baker Ridge Vineyard is located in the Middle Reach region of the Russian River Valley on a ridgeline overlooking the river. Baker Ridge Vineyard consists of 26.5 planted acres of primarily Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with small blocks of excellent Viognier and Grenache. While 7 acres of Pinot Noir remain from plantings dating back to 1992, the vineyard was largely replanted by the Baker family in 2008. Sitting high on the crest above the famous vineyards of Williams Selyem, Rochioli and Flax, this location is in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation, and is heavily influenced by the fog that regularly follows the river in from the Pacific Ocean.

The ridge predominantly runs northwest to southeast, and is made up of a series of rolling hills that present the vineyards in a multitude of aspects. In addition, it offers at least four distinct soil types, from rocky to sandy loam to blocks with more silty clay. All of the soils offer excellent drainage and contribute to lower vigor in the vines than what is generally seen on the valley floor. Baker Ridge Vineyard is farmed as eleven distinct blocks, with seven blocks of Pinot Noir featuring six different clones (777, 667, Pommard, Swan, Martini and Wadenswil), two blocks of Chardonnay (clone 809 and Wente), as well as a block of both Viognier and Grenache. The overall diversity of aspect and soil type, in addition to the variety of clones and rootstocks, delivers an outstanding level of complexity in the fruit harvested from Baker Ridge Vineyard.
