OUR VINEYARDS

 


Longevity of vineyard relationships is integral to our winemaking program. It is only over time that we can show the validity of these special places and the consistency that they are capable of repeating vintage after vintage. A vineyard sourced for only a year or two is a waste of time. We want decades from these vineyards so that we can show our customers exactly what we are talking about when we discuss the sandy loamy soils at one vineyard versus the shale or granitic soils of another.
