The Muldune Trail Vineyard is located at about 1,600 feet in elevation, high above the Anderson Valley town of Boonville. The Vineyard’s name is derived from lore and the obscure dialect of English known as Boontling that developed in Anderson Valley in the late 1800’s. In Boontling, a Muldune is a voluptuous young woman, and the Muldune Trail is the trail that young Booneville men traversed in the late 1800’s over the mountain to reach the town of Ukiah to meet young women. Our Muldune Vineyard is located off the Muldune trail and named after its location and for the voluptuous character. Robert Parker compared the 2012 Muldune Trail Pinot to a lush, full bodied Volnay.
Wines From This Vineyard
"The 2016 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Muldune Trail is medium to deep ruby-purple colored and charges boldly from the glass with intense scents of raspberries, black cherries, pomegranate, and redcurrants with touches of fungi, bay leaves and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, fine-grained foundation and oodles of freshness, it delivers powerful black and red berry layers and a long fruity finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, October 2018
