Goldeneye Winery Farms
The Narrows Ranch, formerly Floodgate Vineyard, is a 202-acre site with 52 acres of ridge top vineyards in the cooler northern end of the Anderson Valley. Repairs of roads and drainage at the site has been done to address previous land uses, including redwood logging, and to protect the waters of Floodgate Creek, a tributary to the Navarro River.
Named for the confluence of Anderson Creek and Rancheria Creek, which with Indian Creek form the Navarro River, the 53-acre vineyard surrounds the Goldeneye tasting room in Boonville. No-till practices, combined with sediment catchment basins, protect water quality.
Gowan Creek Ranch
Gowan Creek Ranch is an 80-acre site in central Anderson Valley. Goldeneye Winery converted the property from a thoroughbred horse ranch into a winery and a 38-acre vineyard, bisected by Gowan Creek. The vineyard is managed with sustainable farming practices, including hosting a flock of sheep in the winter as an effective organic alternative to herbicides and fertilizers, while reducing soil compaction and erosion.
