We believe wine is "made in the vineyard," and we have a year round commitment to the vines. The latest best practices for canopy and irrigation management is used to maintain balanced vines for even fruit maturation -- with low yields per vine / acre. The vines are managed by hand with the utmost care, from pruning, shoot positioning, leafing, trimming, to harvesting.

Traditional "old world" family wine making techniques are combined with modern concepts, to ensure our grapes unique qualities are reflected in the wines. Grapes are carefully picked and sorted by hand, and then destemmed and fermented in small open top containers. Cold and extended maceration, multiple hand punch downs, pump overs, etc., are used to extract optimum color and flavor. Grapes are gently basket pressed, and the wines are cellared in primarily French oak.

Our vineyard is planted with 10 different varietals, giving us many blending options for our limited production estate wines. Our artisan wine making style then strives to maintain the balance that began in the vineyard -- handcrafting a finished wine that brings out all the big flavors the fruit has to offer. We hope you will see our passion in the finished product, and that our fine wines will help create a unique and memorable experience for you.
