Grower/Family:

The Fridell family moved to Sonoma Valley in 1986 and created GlenLyon, named after Suzy's historic family Clan birthplace in the HighLands of Scotland. They began planting vines the following year and specialize in Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. During the following decades they built a winery and planted an additional vineyard, thus creating GlenLyon, their family wine brand. They currently produce small lots of Syrah Rose, Viognier, Chardonnay, a Cabernet/Syrah blend, Estate Syrah and Port made from Syrah.

Vineyard Overview:

The lower vineyard was originally planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1987 and T-budded to Syrah a decade later. The upper vineyard consists of both Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon and may be the prettiest and well-tended hillside vineyard site in all of the Wine Country. You’d have to see that and judge for yourself….
