Vineyards The Vineyards at Black Knight are scattered across this Mountain Top. Of the 60 acres a little over 30 acres are planted to vineyard. Due to the steep and complex location, there are at least 20 different microclimates. We have planted 5 different clones of Chardonnay and 7 clones of Pinot Noir. Combine that with the microclimates, we have hundreds of variables to consider while farming. On the positive side the hundreds of variables also provide for a rich diversity of grapes and the wines they make.Running through the property is the Rogers Creek Fault. This fault threw up a fantastic rocky ridge completely different from the soils on the majority of the rest of the property. It was very difficult but we managed to plant the top of the ridge.
