Meticulous Farming

Every farming decision is intentional. Every cut is a judgment call.

Obsession with Detail

 

 
 

We are farmers and we farm hard. There are no shortcuts. 

  • 800 Acres of Estate Vineyards

  • 900,000 Estate Grown Vines

  • Each vine is touched by a human at least 4 times prior to Harvest in the Fall.

Handpicked at Night

 

 

Picking grapes in the middle of the night and early morning hours when the temperatures are cooler has countless benefits and is why start times at 1:30 a.m. don’t phase us during Harvest season.

Better for the workers.

Better for the grapes.

Better for the wine.
