What is Clonal Massale?
An innovative viticulture technique changing the way Pinot noir is planted. Clonal Massale is essentially a hybrid of clonal selection and massale selection, where over 25 clones of Pinot noir, selected for a specific site, are mixed and planted randomly in a single block. This technique has evolved over two generations with four decades of evaluation and experience working with many different clones. Ponzi Vineyards now has over 30 acres of vines planted to clonal massale.
