Open: Year Round

Our approach to crafting quality, world-class wines begins in the vineyard. We use small-vine viticulture practices that consist of high density vine spacing of 4 feet by 4 feet. There are 2780 vines per acre in this system, compared to a typical vineyard which has 680. By putting so many vines per acre we are forcing the plants to compete for water, nutrients, and root area. The result of this competition is a vine that is dwarfed in size and output. These vines produce fruit clusters that are half the weight of a typical cluster. With smaller clusters, come smaller berries. Smaller berries give us an increase in our juice to skin to seed ratio, thereby producing grapes with more intense flavors and concentration. Currently, we have 3 varieties planted under this high density system, Cabernet (Clone 337), Syrah (Noir Clone), and Primitivo (Clone 5). As the vineyard matures the variety that shows the most promise will be expanded to other portions of the property.
